Looking to buy strap hardware shipped from/to USA/Canada

Postby Andres_Santacruz » Fri May 06, 2011 12:59 am

Hello,

Don´t know about you but all the new strap/pad systems can be a bit complicated and incompatible between different board brands.

I have been using Mystic Straps on my boards for years, and love them, the best way to fix the screws through the straps is with the little rectangular rounded corner teethed metal plates (not sure the name), that look like these: http://www.nice-kites.com/NICE/T-Rex.html

These work much better than regular stainless washers in my opinion because they fix the strap, and are rectangular letting the strap bend at the attachment as it should.

Everyone used to stock them but i have not been able to find any today. I have been given the manufacturer contact in Thailand (Nice Bindings/PMT) but i think i would need to ship a bunch for them to be worth it and maybe it is a huge hassle all the way from Thailand.

I´d like to buy around 100 of these, to have sets for 25 pairs of straps.

Please help!

Try these guys...

Brafasco and Fastenal. They're in Canada and the US.

They sell all sorts of fasteners and such. If they don't have it, they might be able to give you a lead.

I buy my stuff from the "Home Hardware" in Canada. Tee Nuts are super cheap there.

Hope it helps.

Windance calls them anti-twist washers.
stainless sounds like a good idea.

see if they still got 'em.

I just checked Home Hardware and all they had was Steel Tee Nuts. Are you insetting steel Tee Nuts in the board? What about rust?
