Eskimo Quickflip pole snaps

7 posts in this topic

Anybody else have problems with the snaps that hold the poles extended? I bought a Quickflip II, and everytime I set it up (including the very first time), one or two of them break. Last time out I brought one to fix the last break, and an extra, well two more broke. Eskimo has been very good about sending me more- twice, but it seems I am going to have to have a pocketful of these everytime I go out. I am not slamming poles together either, they break right when I start to extend. I now listen for the tell tale "ping" as I gently slide the poles! Frustrating!! Anybody have a fix for this? Any ideas?

I have the QF 3. When I put it together two broke or were broke. Arnison sent some more out and had them in 2 days. I have not broke any since. I dont know if it makes a difference which way they go in meaning loop facing out or in. I guess I would call Arnisons and see what they recommend. maybe they will build a little better clip. Good luck....

I also called and they we real good about it. Sent me some out right away at no cost. They realize there is a problem and wil do whatever it takes to fix it. They told me that they will replace these as needed and send you the better ones as soon as they get them in. Cant beat that type of service!

I also had wonderful service from them on this issue. I called because one was broken off when I put it together. They sent me 4 of them so that I had spares.

Does anyone have an opinion on which way the clips should go in? I just emailed Ardisam to ask their advice. I'll port the reply when I get it.

I had the problem when I first assembled my QF II. The service was great and they sent me out a 5 pack of them right away. I have not had the problem since. I do have the extra's just in case. They do recommend putting car wax on the poles to make them slide easier but I have not done this yet. Anyway a minor problem and quick fix a all around good shack.

Has anybody had trouble with the windows ripping? Noticed one of the side windows had a 3" cut in it the 2nd time it was put up. I'm thinking they may have had this problem in the past due to the fact they are just velcroed in.

    • Had an 09'. Got rid of it. Also,  you could not keep the front end aligned.  Otherwise a very nice truck.
    • Helps when I comprehend what I read.  I actually just cut the handle off my tongue jack on my Yetti and welded on 3/4 nut too.  My M18 drill with 1,200 in-lbs (2704-20) and it has no problem raising or lowering the tongue.  Biggest thing I noticed was making sure my drill was on the #1 low speed setting.      As far as torque goes and harming your auger.  I think you are totally fine and shouldn't harm anything.  The max amount that these K-Drills and Clam plates are drilling these days with the big drills are 8".  Most sized augers these days have no problem turning a 10" auger which is nearly twice as large of an area than an 8" auger.  Being 2 strokes can normally operate in any orientation without being damaged the only concern I would have would be your gears and any shifting of grease inside operating the auger head on its side under load.    They say Ions will do 10" holes but after I talked to their customer service reps about it, I wouldn't trust an Ion with a 10" more than I do a wet fart.  Just the fact that they don't even sell a 10" package indicates there could possibly be issues with torque and reliability when operating the 10" auger "accessory".  For now I'd just stick to your strike master going up and save your Ion any extra wear and tear.  Maybe even ask Santa for some electric jacks this Christmas
    • As the media begins to draw a pretty picture about the November jobs report, namely that unemployment has dropped to 4.6 percent, its lowest level in nine years, they are unlikely to tell you the other part of the story. The labor force participation rate continues to decline and is stuck at a rate we haven't seen since February 1978, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.  It gets worse. Last month, we lost 4,000 manufacturing jobs, offering more damage to the already 301,000 we've lost since President Obama took office. - Town Hall   See for yourself.. U.S. Dept of Labor / BLS Date Viewer   Whaaa ???   OH, MY....  
    • I wouldn't do that for each one. I was wondering if you couldn't cut a winch down, or maybe just leave it as is, so you could attach a drill to the low speed post and tack weld/rig a socket or something for the other side and just hold it in your hand. It probably won't work because it sounds too easy. 
    • My, such big words!! Yer a talented liddle Smurf, aintcha? We might as well get to work doin' what we were accused of, munchkin!!! Like Carly Simon said, "no one does it better"....
