Metric Screws for Fly Door fins

Postby prelives » Mon Oct 01, 2012 6:11 am

I've recently lost a screw and broken another. Any of you dealers out there have replacement metric screws? No one around here seems to carry metric screws - I found a couple bolts, but there aren't stainless, so are rusting and they also stick out quite a bit and are a bit of a hazard. Thanks,

Scott

I'm not a dealer, but I should have a few ss screws from my spared box.
I used to ride a flysurfer board.

What size do you need?

If I don't have it there is a store near me that has SS metric hardware.

I wish the world could get rid of imperial sized bolts... they are a pain .... 3/8ths.... 5/16ths :o :o

Specialty tools in Goleta has all the screws you are looking for. Off Hollister between Fairview and Los Carneros.

I can't ever find the stainless metric hardware at Home Depot or Lowes, but all of the Ace Hardware stores I have been in have a great selection of this type of hardware.

This Ace store looks like it's less than a mile from Chase Palm Park in Santa Barbara.

Thanks for the replies guys. Appreciate the help. Fred & Ted - will hit you guys up if Specialty Tools can't help me out. I tried Ace already - no metric stuff. They sent me to a Honda dealer who had some bolts that were a temp fix but they are rusting & stick out so feel like a hazard. I agree the metric system is so easy.
