    Default Source for Big Head Cable Tyrap fasterners in US or equivalent???

    Morning All,
    After a hit from one of Oakland's larger potholes I had the pleasure of watching the LF Cycle wing fly off...

    The rigid adhesive that the wings were bonded on with adhered to the stays well, but not the wings, poor prep work.

    I was wondering if anyone knows a source for Big Head Cable Tyrap fasteners in the US or an equivalent.

    https://www.hall-fast.com/bighead-st...ap-16mm-x-12mm

    It would be nice to have the option of removing the wings and this looks like a reasonable way do do so.

    Thanks,

    Andy

    Used them on my front wings but I dont know of a US distributor
    Got mine from this place and had my sis mail them over

    I glassed mine in with a small patch of fiberglass mat over each one so no way are they are ever coming off.

    Thanks!

    While researching methods for holding the wings on I came across an account where a guy lost the wing, it hit & dented the hood, then took out the windshield! I guess I was lucky.

    I'm surprised they don't have a distributor here, wonder why? They seem to offer more bonding fastener options than the suppliers here...

    Seems the factory has gotten away from mechanical fasteners and using adhesives to mount the wings

    That's how I did it but just used a square piece of mat slightly bigger than the base of the trapp it seems more than adequate to hold them in place
