2000 Formula 155 Footstrap Screws
What type of foot strap screws are used on the 2000 Formula 155?

(I would post a link to the 2000 website, but this is my first post and the site requires 5 posts before including links.)

I need to replace them: the phillips heads are worn.

Board still going strong!

Hi Chris,
The 2000 F-155 used pretty standard 6mm x 1.0mm x 28 mm PT (Plastics Technology) footstrap
Most windsurf shops should still carry some of them.
If you cannot find them. let us know here and we may be able to come up with a set of them.
There are 2 reasons the Phillips heads could be worn.
#1 Some one used a power tool (probably with the wrong size bit) to install them originally.
#2 Someone used a damaged, or the wrong size Phillips screwdriver to tighten them.
It takes a #3 Phillips high quality heat treated tip screwdriver.
Any other tool just tears up the Phillips recess and geometry and makes a mess of the
screw heads.
