Hi, Don't know if anyone can help me, but one of my footstraps pulled out of the deck the other day, first time out after I had repositioned them. The plasticky - rubbery lining into which the self tappers go had failed, and some of it was stuck on the screw. I got hold of a thicker screw, but there was nothing for that to grip onto.

The question is, is there anything available to renew this lining... Ola over on the Boards forum suggested a possible liquid fix...?


Thanks in advance.

Hi Clewless,
Try the recommended "remedy" for this.

"Repair of damaged footstrap screw thread or vent screw threads."

I've done this repair many times and it's a permanent fix.
Hope this helps,
