hardware for a strikemaster extension

6 posts in this topic

I feel goofy asking but I have an 18" extension that I bought with my 10" lazer XL3000 about 5 years ago. I've never put it on the auger but now that it looks like I'll need it to go to Red this weekend, I'm not sure what size/type bolt/nut I'll need to mount it? does it need to be an allen head like the one that holds the head to the auger?-appreciate any help!

It should have come with one, just like the one that is on the auger now.

Hey bud they need a metric bolt. Its an M8 about 1.5" to 1.75" but the lenght will be metric. I can make sweet extensions out of solid stainless steel made to custom lenghts. let me know if yer interested. BTW you can get the bolts at most Hardware Hank's/Ace. Get the stainles ones.

Thanks for the info-It didn't come w/ an extra or I lost it over the years but I just emailed Strikemaster w/ this question as well and am waiting for a reply.
AaronGramenz sounds like your gonna be busy making extensions if winter keeps up like this, and I know there are several people looking for extensions because most stores are sold out!!! Good luck and tight lines!

I think that you can get away with a 5/16" bolt. That is what I have in my Jiffy and I think that they are the same

The extension's top, the female end that accepts the male end of the powerhead, requires a metric bolt to fasten correctly. You can go a size smaller and simply stick it through and put a nut on the bolt, but that will ruin the original threads as you use the auger.

The threads are there for a reason, so you can bind the power shaft to the extension more solidly.

I had the factory allen-wrench bolt from Strikemaster with the extension but lost it. When it came time to use the extension on my XL3000, I took it to the hardware store and ran through a bunch of bolts to find the right one. Only one that would thread on was metric. I don't remember the size, but you can easily bring your extension to the store and experiment like I did.

I bought two bolts, one for a spare. Once I had the bolt threaded through, I also put on TWO nuts, the first screwed on until it locked tight against the extension, the second tightened down against the first to further lock it on.

Even if you get the factory replacement bolt from Strikemaster, it's a good idea to get a second one or the right size hardware store bolt as backup.

    • I usually get mine from Tim over at Stump Jumper Designs. He does great work and has lots of choices of woods etc... 
    •   Yeah, but you know your Aunt Bev will never make fun and insult you on FaceBook like you will get here! 
    • Smoked 3 slimers last week.  real simple brine, 1 cup pickling salt, 1 cup brown sugar and water to cover.  24 hr soak.  added onions and brown sugar on top. 3.5 hrs at 195.  Used to leave skin on, dealt with the slime.  still tasted great.  Been skin off for a couple batches lately and its the way to go.  no slime to deal with, just sprayed the rack with pam.  hammerhandles be ware!
    • I've only tried them with Northern, but honestly, I'm not sure I could taste the difference if I didn't make them myself.  All psychological, IMO - this will likely start an off-topic discussion BUT I participated in an 8 person taste test between Walleye, Northern and Bass (yes, we cut-up a medium sized bucket-mouth).  I was the only one to name all three fish correctly and it was only due to the fact that my friend who was in-charge of the test accidentally missed a y-bone so I just had to guess in-between walleye and bass and I guessed correctly.  A couple of the guys also had a y-bone and got their guess between 'eye and bass wrong!!!  Flaky white fish is flaky white fish - especially when you bust it all up, mix it with bread crumbs, mayo and whatever else.  Again, just my opinion.
    •   I agree the split did not work out. Also a lot of people are on FB. Heck I finally joined last year. Jury is still out whether I like it or not!!
    •   Just like you being a social media queen, LOL

    • Every one said, with out Double here we may as well leave.   So, Welcome back may be with you here they will come back now! 
    • My buddy Dan and I have been going to the same farm for 3 years now and the turkey hunting is almost unfair. We've never been skunked and the only time we haven't tagged out is the first year.    This year the bowhunting was tough. We were trying to be fancy and get things on film and it hurt us tremendously. So, naturally, we gave up on filming and went back to having fun.    We shot 4 turkeys, a tom and a jake each, all by fanning (reaping). The action was intense and super fun. Additionally, after having a set busted by a wandering daytime coyote, I lip squeaked her into to 20 yards and finished her off with the same treatment, a load of #6 to the face. My jake and the coyote are on cell phone video so I will see about sharing those.   My tom, came on the last day. He ran more than 200 yds just to confront that turkey fan. Due to a depression in the landscape, I had no idea where he would come up. He emerged at 10 FEET! and in a split second I shot him at 8FEET!! Thankfully I had the bead on his head or I would've likely missed. Nothing beats turkey hunting with your best buddy.    And I'm having a taxidermist friend of mine do a euro mount on the coyote skull. Unfortunately the hide was shedding terribly and was matted with mud.
