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.

    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
