I'm not familiar with these, but from what you describe, maybe you can run a tap in the slider so the threads are the right size? And use a allen socket with a torque wrench to torque them properly?
oh, they hold up alright. i've race crash tested them many times.When I first saw those I didn't think they'd hold up in a crash, I think that 'lil peg would grind off or crack into pieces...
That's a real bitch since these are the ones that convert to tiedown eyes, so now you have this problem every time you convert them. They should have just put a screw right through the base of the shroom and into the base itself to hold onto it. That's what CFM did and it works like a charm.Well, I got them on, but even with the strap wrench they were a bitch to get flush on the bases. And when they were on, the label/name that is raised up on the mushroom isnt lined up right. And even though that is one of those things that will get on my nerves, I think Ill just let it go becasue I dont want to take them off again.
As for torquing the bases, I just bought a $.99 allen wrench, chopped off the bent part and threw it in a 5/16 socket to torque it properly.
I dont doubt that these will work, but I never thought something as simple and brainless as installing frame sliders would be such an ordeal.
