poles for a portable

5 posts in this topic

Guys, I need help. I built my own portable because I just couldn't find anything out there that I liked. Anyway, I am all done except for the ends of the poles that go across, from end to end, on the inside that keep the two ends up. I have the poles, they slide out to length. But what can I get to put on the ends of the poles so I can clip them on the end poles? I have seen some sort of plastic clip on the ends in some portables. Is this something I can buy somewhere for mine? Ideas, hints?
Thanks,
John

I think what your looking for are closet rod cups, they come in pairs and can be found at any lumber/hardware store, you could also use a pc of wood with a hole the size of your rod, for one end then a U shaped cut pc for the other end, either way you go its the same process, one end in the hole the other slides in the cup.

If your connecting a vertical pole to a horizontal pole do this. Get some leather strap 1" wide and 6" long, rivets,rivet gun, and snaps.
Rivet a strap 1" from the end of a horizontal poles. Rivet a male snap 180 degrees from the strap you just put in. Using a scrap piece of tubing as a gauge, wrap the leather strap around the tube and mark for your snap location. Rivet the female snap on the mark. So you do this on each end of the horizontal poles.

Worms,

I bought some of those clips from Bluewater bait in bemidji. I think if you go to any sport shop that sells portables that use those clips, they should have parts for you. I am not sure what brands of portables use them but I have a Shoremaster 6x8 that does so I just found a sport shop that sells shoremaster. Maybe you could do the same.

thanks all. I think I found the clips I was looking for. I am getting some sent to me from canvas craft in anoka. This is where my dad bought his portable and they should work just fine.

    • which models of striker bibs/ coat?
    • That little doe is a sweetheart. Reminds me why I gave up hunting. But I did it for more than six decades from MN to MT to AK and Canada. Before somebody jumps in with a snide  comment, I don't care if YOU do it but it is just not for me any more. Carry on. Nice pix....couple nice looking bucks.

    • I agree; stay away from the extended warranty.  If my dealership (Village Chevrolet) won't honor the original warranty, what makes you think they will honor an extended warranty?  This problem was discovered well before my warranty ran out and they still treated me like an ugly sister...

    • I can't say I'm much in agreement with Gary Johnson on this issue and I can admit it. I will say however that it makes more sense than the deal Pence struck with Carrier.   1. The carrier deal handed away state money while still being a net LOSS of jobs in that state. Johnson's program enticed new business into his state and resulted in a net GAIN of jobs and probably tourism dollars as well.  2. I think these types of deals should be handled as locally as possible. It's called representative government. Maybe it makes sense in the New Mexico deal that it be handled at the state level since it probably effects the state as a whole at least to some degree but I don't know. The Indiana deal should have been handled locally, especially if any of the tax cuts promised were property taxes. Those benefit communities at a more local level and the jobs saved benefit communities at a more local level. The state government possibly should not be handling these things but the Federal Government most assuredly should not be involved in these deals.  3. I'm pretty sure that the threat of interference with federal contracts had much more to do with the Carrier deal anyway so why did they give Carrier any tax breaks? I thought Trump was a tough guy and a strong armer? In the New Mexico deal, tax cuts are about the only leverage someone would have to bring that extra revenue and jobs into the state.   I'll say it again, I'm really not in favor of the government picking winners and losers. I do think the Pence deal is something that happens every day but the only difference is it happens at a local level and you don't have a blow hard President-elect taking credit for it normally. Time will tell whether it was a good deal or if the rest of the manufacturing community will hold the Government for ransom now like every professional sports franchise does these days.    Gary Johnson is in favor of replacing the current Tax code with a 'Fair Tax" system.
