Doublebull replacement rods - how to??

8 posts in this topic

My Doublebull got caught in a windstorm last year when I left it up on some private property and broke 4 of the rods. It's pretty cool that Primos will send you free replacements but here's the question - How in the heck do you get the ball on the end of the rod into the hub socket without shaving it down? I'm sure it fits great once in, but I'm not seeing a way to force it shy of a 2lb rubber mallet, and maybe not even then.

Ideas?

I have replaced the little piece on the end of the rod. I took the other off and then took the plate of the hub, put the poles in place and then placed the cover back on and tightened up the screw that goes into the middle.

Now, that is the type hub I have with the cover on it held with the screw in the middle. I would assume that you may have the same style.

You may have a diiferent style than I as my blinds have some years on them.

Are they still there? Primos bought them so I was not sure if they still did work up there. What a great place, bring in the blind they will fix it while you wait (usually no charge). I hope that customer service did not leave when the biz got sold.

Managed to call the 888# on the Primos site and got thru to someone, don't know if it's here or at their hq. Anyway, as was described, there's a cross-tip screw on the back of the hub (on the canvas side where I didn't see it!) that you take off, remove the washer, remove the ball and whatevers left of the shaft and then just slide in a new one. The new rods seem like a better material and the price is right, free and you pay shipping.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
