flip over question

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering if anybody has tryed to secure the flap to the side of the sled with either velcro, or snaps..

and by flap i mean the loose part of material that usually sits on the ground and where the canvas is attached to the sled. there is a gap in there and was wondering if anybody came up with an ingenious way (other then snow) to attach that piece to the sled somehow.

I think you have it figured out. I would give the velcro a try.

I think I'll also give it a try.

Great idea.

i tried velcro but it did not adhere to the fabric. it stayed on the sled pretty well so i think im going to bring it to a tailor and have the velcro sewed on.

I ran a lightweight chain inside the hem of the flap that lays on the ice, great if there is a snow shortage , the velcro sounds like it should cure the sled flap, good idea

I did this with my fish trap lite, stitch the velcro to the canvas with needle and thread, I actually used fireline. I also did the chain thing and it worked pretty well. The velcro won't hold against a strong wind.

Good luck

Walldoggie, You could also try heavy duty snaps. Pick-up a snap kit(includes tool) from a fabric shop for like $7 and pop rivet the snaps onto the tub. On my yukon, I first used the screws that come with the house. Then I converted it over to the snaps (on the bottom of the tub rail) and it works GREAT, seals well and doesn't come loose on its own. In the spring, I take off the tent, clean it, fold it up and store it in a rubbermaid tub. Never need to worry about mice etc.

I was thinking of riveting the velcro on to the canvas, and riveting on to the tub also. When it gets warm i will try to do this and take pictures.
