Skins are made of tips, tails, glue, and fur. Except the fur, these can all be replaced. Here is our current lineup of parts from Colltex, the makers of Colltex skins.

Tip Loop Kit – Cable system that feeds through a metal tube under the skin and a plastic adjuster on top of the ski.

Rounded Tip Bracket – Curved metal buckle that sits on the tip of the ski. Fold a skin over it and cover with included vinyl patch. 70mm wide. AKA Skin Clips.

Adjustable Tip Bracket – Inner and outer metal brackets that you can hammer together to acheive the right width for your ski tips. 70+ mm.

Camlock Tail Clip – A simple all-plastic clip that can hold a strap onto a ski. Strap not included.

Camlock+ Tail Clip – A plastic clip with a metal bracket that holds a strap onto the ski. No strap, often red.

Camlock+ Tail Kit – Adjustable tail strap with a Camlock+ clip and rivets to hold it on.

Adhesive Tube – Have your magic carpets lost their magic? Not to worry. Refresh with a new layer of glue. 75ml.

Transfer Tape – A strip of backing coated with glue that you can transfer to your skins.

Whizzz Tape – A refresher coating of the acrylic non-glue formula.

Protective Netting – Keep your climbing skin glue fresh and clean with protective netting. Sometimes called 'cheat sheets'. Fits skins up to 140mm wide.

Carry Bag – Nice bag for storage and transport of climbing skin kits. Emblazened with Colltex logo.

Question from Ginger
how do I use the transfer tape. do I iron off the old glue?
Answer from jbo
Hi Ginger, it's best to start with a clean layer of glue, so you want to at least do the paper-bag & iron method of removing the top layer of dirty glue. Then you can apply the tape. It comes with instructions as well!

by Jonathan S (used product regularly)
This review is only for the "Camlock+ Tail Clip" -- and it came already affixed to some Colltex skins, so I can't speak to the ease of retrofit.

With that caveat aside though, Five Stars for:
- Cam attaches very easily and securely to the ski tail.
- Cam then allows for nice grab when ripping.
- Length adjustment is easy indoors when warm, less so when cold in the field, but given that the tail attachment is there for backup anyway, not like you need to be removing every little bit of excess slack on subsequent laps.

Overall, a great choice if you want the extra security of a tail attachment (combined with a basic bar-style tip attachment) yet want to buy skin material from a roll.
