Double Bull replacement rods

7 posts in this topic

I was out hunting and ended up breaking a couple rods this weekend. Does anyone know if DB has a video or instructions on how to replace the rods or a repair center in the state?

Thanks

I have replaced mine. You need to look at the center of the hub and remove the screw. Then you can pull out the rods and replace. You will see how to put them back in after you remove them. Then slide the new ones in 1 at a time and bend the rod so it will slide into the corner holder. After the rods are in, screw the plate back in place and your done.

After you have done it once, its a pretty easy job.

If you have a tough time, give me a call or if you want, I see your from Waconia and your welcome to come over to Arlington and I will show you how.

Hello Harvey,

I'm going to give a shot, once I get the replacements from them. Any day works better for you, days or evenings? I would gladly take a day of vacation to come over during the day if that is better? Thanks Harvey.

Ken

PS: My email is kwyatt@garlockequip.com, why don't you email me your email with your address and I will call you sometime this month if I run into problems.

Thanks

Just call me a day or so ahead of time. It should not take longer than 30 minutes to put them back in.

Anytime works for me if you call in advance.

    • I tried to purchase the screws yetti uses from Fastenal who is their vendor for the screws. They are only sold in large reels designed for a self loading screwgun. I finally called Casey at Glacial lake docks where I purchased my yetti and he sent me out the amount I needed. They work great to add additional fir strips. The plastic used to tie them together comes right off as you screw them in. Hope that helps. 
    • Sorry...was wrong on the specs.   Manufacturer is Core Ice.  It was 1450# for a 12' and 1250# for a 8'.  
    • I believe you want to use a zinc coated or galvanized steel according to the charts.  I'm sure someone will come along to correct me
    • In the back room there is a company that is using bonded foam panels (similar to garage door panels, but really clean looking), and had weights of 1250# for a 12' and 1450# for a 16'.  Aluminum trailer frames that could convert to a skid frame.  Can't recall the name.  I'm sure they were spendy, but I can see a concept like that going somewhere for the hardcore fishing crowd.   Yetti, Firebrand, Big Bite, and Glacier all had really nice display models.      Lots of campers (disguised as fish houses) out there at prices that make me want to jump into the business.  I was in two different manufacturers houses with prices well over $30k that had wire nuts for connections.  That is going to be a fun adventure for someone 2-3 years down the road when they find out their manufacturer saved $15 on their wiring.           
    • Thank you for all the help!  Ended up going with the Marcum VS485C.  After some research, there were a few other Marcums that were on the list (825 & 625), the Aqua Vu HD, and the Pan Cam.  The mini cams from all manufactures weren't what I was looking for, but they are cool and do have their place.     After seeing everything in person, I think the Aqua Vu HD had the best camera/screen.  The Marcums were a little bit behind, but the 825, 625, 485, and Pan Cam had similar real life clarity.  The 485 won out because of the $300 price point vs the others at $450-700, and was almost identical for resolution, other than the HD.
      I honestly think these cameras are all about 5+ years behind in technology in comparison to the broader camera/tv screen market.  Running off a 7-9ah battery is probably one of the limiting factors.  Another may be the cold.  The main reason (IMO) is that the manufacturers are hoping they can incrementally rape us by trickling out technology each year, similar to the computer manufacturers of the 90s/early 2000's.  For the price of a middle of the road underwater camera, I can buy a Chinese made 50" TV (these all have Chinese made 5-8" screens) and a GoPro or Sony Action Cam (which is 10x's the picture quality).
