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.
