Here lies some common hardware that can be useful in keeping your alpine touring ski boots in working order.
Chicago Rivets - Sold individually, these rivets screw together so you don't need a press to fix riveted buckles and other parts. The flush heads are gentle on plastic and carbon fiber. Use with Vibratite to keep the rivets from unscrewing. Three lengths available: 3/16", 1/4", and 1/2". Get the middlest length for use with the "toe triangle" on Dynafit TLT 5 & 6 boots.
Boot Shims - Sold individually, these shims are an uncompressable cardboard shimto take up volume in a boot. Shims come in 2 thicknesses 1/16" and 1/8" and in one size to trim to fit.
In your text for Chicago Rivets three lengths are mentioned to be available: 3/16", 1/4", and 1/2". When trying to order, 1/4" doesn't appear as an option in drop-down menu. And yes, this is exactly the size I'd like to have.
Hi Guys, Would these be the right diameter for a backcountry fix on a Vulcan/Mercury instep buckle strap or toe buckle strap connection to the boot shell? What is the diameter on the barrels? Cheers! -Nick
On the Chicago rivets . I have TLT 6 boots. one of the triangle rivets has broke and needs to be replaced. You recommend the middle length which I assume to be 1/4 . Problem 1/4 is not listed in the drop down menu ????. What to do ? Thanks Robie Pruden
