Snowbound

Securing Catch Covers

Recommended Posts

I have an aluminum skid fish house and when pulling to new locations the Catch Covers can snap out of place and then we get some snow in the house.

Looking for ideas (other that running a couple screws into the cover) to keep them in place when transporting

Thanks

I’ve never had a problem like that. Are they real Catch Cover or the knockoff ones? You must have a lot of flex in your floor. Lots of easy fixes, screws-small 1x2 that swivels, I’m sure you’ll figure out. My CC are very tight.

No knock offs, I am using Catch Covers and they are tight.

My house is basically a toboggan and slides on top of the snow.

The Catch Covers are in a spear hole and when pulled snow builds up and will push the cover out of place.

That's my thought to screw a lath over the top of the cover, but hope to think of something better

    • Thanks, that is exactly what is needed.  But of course my mom wouldn't let me look at the chairs tonight so that's that.  
    • Those sticky felt pads?
    • Maybe this?   https://myeasyparts.com/epd_english/chair-glides-furniture-glides/adjustable-leveling-glides/sofia-leveling-feet-glides/leveling-adjustable-feet-1-38-base-diameter-716-x-1-by-12-stem-sofia-style-a-63de.html    
    • Red neck fix- take a belt sander and sand a flat spot in the caters so they won’t turn and you are set
    • What you want exists. I used to work for a company that produced a standing chair and I saw parts like that. The trick will be sourcing them in the quantity you need. might want to check with Grainger or McMaster-carr.   How about splurging on your Mom and getting her a new table and chairs set? Might be easier.😀
    • The legs are fairly long/wide rectangular and so I don't see this type of thing working.  What I would really like would be some sort of device that had the shaft but a flat piece of plastic rather than the casters.  But I've never seen anything like that.
    • Couldn't you pry them off with a channel locks and put a rubber chair-table leg cap on them?   
    • Mom just got wooden flooring installed in her kitchen.  The chairs she has have casters, the ones with the shaft that gets inserted into the sleeve on the bottom of the leg.  We'd like to get something was just a flat piece that wouldn't move so easily.  Concern is that the 93-year-old will take a tumble if the chairs moves as she sits down.  
    • It was a flooded camper to start.  $400 basically I paid for a rolling shell.  Here is Iowa not much ice yet, Okoboji should cap tonight.  So hopefully in a couple weeks we will be fishing.  Im wiring it tonight and insulation late this week.  Hopefully we will be done before the 1st of the year or so.   
    • When I built my wheelhouse 5 years ago I wanted total wheel alignment capability. I designed my axles around bolt on wheel hubs with ability to compound shim achieving correct camber and toe. Saw way too many boat trailers with serious worn tires due to hubs welded to axels. (Tire in photo attached to 2x4 was used during build so I could cut the grass.)
