Securing footstraps and grab handle.

Postby kitesurfer74 » Fri Sep 05, 2003 12:39 pm


Can someone give me advice on how to secure the footstraps and grab handle to a corecell kiteboard. I have produced 2 boards, 137cm x 37cm x 12mm (3 x 4mm foam) and 110cm x 40xm x 8mm (2 x 4mm foam). Intend to laminate with carbon/glass using epoxy.

Are you using purpose built inserts (if so, where can you buy them in the UK) or just screwing the footstrap/handle into the deck? Any advice welcome.
