WTB Kold Kutters

I need some studs for my boots, I went without in AK for the sake of my boat but I have a trip planned to the N Umpqua and NEED studs ASAP.

I'm looking to buy a pack of Kold kutters (or the like) but you get like 300 per pack (only $20) I don't need that many, ever! I was hoping someone else has done this and would sell me enough for a pair of boots? Any brand is fine I just don't want to spend as much on studs as I did boots!

Nuts!

I have a whole bag and now can't find the bloody things.

Mind just focused .... I'd sent them off to a fellow with the same request as yours. But I'll make you a small deal as I need some too. Order the full load and I'll split the cost (plus the mail cost for my half forwarded on).

If you order through Amazon.com you can get them in three days or less.

Do you know how to properly install same? That's not a silly question.

You're going to need full bags. They wear out in a couple weeks

Not quite true.

If you do a hell of a lot of walking on solid ground that may be true, but ditto for carbide spikes. But a full replacement will take you less than 20 minutes. The 'grab' on 'snot rock' with these things is exceptional.

How fast do you need them? How many do you need? I am leaving for the Williamson tomorrow so I probably couldn't get them in the mail before Wednesday or Thursday.

Hit a 'big box' store and get: Metal head 8x12 inch "Hex washer head-zinc."

That, and a small bottle of Gorilla glue will work just fine. Drill small hole, insert the screw, with draw, dab of GG and reinsert. ONLY THING you have to remember is GG is water activated so the felt/what the hell ever has to be damp.

My boots are new and I do not want to pound them ful of holes, I am thinking if I need to pull the client satisfaction card it may be frowned upon

The Allie screws I mentioned above work quite well, just not as 'aggressive' as the KK's. There you want to be walking (repeating myself?) on 'snot rocks.' As far as installing in boot bottoms/ripping them up? You have to be doing a hell of a bad job drilling a 1/8'th inch hole.

I'd strongly suggest putting the 'bottle' aside.

Pata-who?!?

Well after putting this thread up I went out on the town looking for aluminum screws, the only thing I could find was a bar that I thought looked just like the Patagonia ones everybody raves about. A couple hours later and I'm done....

Fred, if these don't work for me I'll let you know and we can split a million screws, if they do I'd be happy to make you some. They will get the ultimate test next weekend on the NU.

Wayne, you are correct. If you want to spend as much as you could on another pair of boots! Patagonia (I'm sure others as well) makes an over the boot deal with aluminum bars, supposed to be great but not cheap for what they are. Plus Simms studs are a DIY thing so I doubt they would care if you had holes screwed into the sole at repair time, how do they know they weren't there's?

Mitch, I appreciate that offer, a lot. I'm hoping I will be set up for now but thank you!

Btw guys, this really didn't take that long. A dremel (at first, angle grinder as the dremel cutoff wheels vanished one after the other) and a couple drill bits. Easy peasy!

I have a couple pairs of the Patagonia's with the bars. Crazy good stick on slimy, wet...you name it. However, dry flat rocks or dry boulders...a bit of a skating rink. I just walk along the edge in shallow water if I have to choose between dry rocks or water to cover any ground. Those bars should work out for you.

Woohoo! This will be fun! If you get the Simms get the ones that are a gold color. I haven't used them but a buddy had been using them hard for 2 years and they've held up great, he loves em. I just can't bring myself to spending that much on screws!

I'm thinking I might still get some aluminum screws to put a few between the bars to help with dry ground or log crossings, anyone ever tried this??
