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.

    • Hmmm.  My cheapest camera is a Wildgame Innovations unit but I haven’t been a great fan of it.  It’s not the NANO version but though, just a cheap one I picked up in a small shop during a hunt cuz I felt I NEEDED one right then.   I do like my old Moultrie and am looking at the M50i as a much updated version of it.   Still comparing their line up.  If I just bought now, that’s what I’d go with.   That WGI 360 sounds like something I have to check out!
    • I have been a Wild Game Innovations fan for most of my time using cams.  I really really like the NANO version they put out.  Compact, only take 4 AA batteries, great battery life and the pictures have been very good quality.  That being said, last year I won a Moultrie Game Spy 2 at a company party and have been very impressed with it.  Same as the Nano, takes only 4 batteries and pictures are very good as well.  These two cameras are now my "go to" and I won't be needing to spend  100's on other cameras when these work great.  The one camera that I am thinking about getting though is the WGI 360 degree camera.  Supposed to be able to take pictures 360 degrees so you don't miss anything moving behind where a normal camera can't detect them.
    • yeah the last couple years have been rather tough for me, but all is good and I can't wait to get back into the stand.  Are you still working the Deployed Soldier/Disabled Soldier hunt at Ripley?  We stopped going as it was just too early in the season and weather was always so darn warm.  Wish they would have held it right prior to the "big" hunts at the end of the month.  Always a good time though.    You'll hear more from me in the time to come and look forward to hearing all your reports of the big one!!!
    • Good yo hear from you again!  Hope your search for property goes well and your time in stand is fruitful.
    • Nice pics jbell! That is a nice yellow garden spider you got there.
    • I had a nice size garden spider on my garage door. It stayed there about 3 weeks. Had a mate who I assume did his business and met his doom. I finally needed to open the door so I safely caught it and let it go in the woods near our house.  Her body is about an inch long. Probably about 3 inches total.       
    • 😄i have several "pet" spiders around the deck and garage. sometimes when i'm bored i swat flies with the swatter and feed them!!!!!!
    • its wierd, my cukes the stems from the ground out look like they were died and dried out but the ends were green, plenty of flowers and producing.quite frankly, i got 2 medium size boxed of cukes in the frig i need to use or give away. i know this isnt right to say, i'm getting cucumbered out.   same with the peppers, i had to look thru a jungle to find them most of the summer as the cukes exploded and basiclly covered them. i have enough peppers for what i need, froze some for chili, and have eaten my share. and again there were no small ones coming in to keep them in the ground to make it till first frost.   my tomatoes, the ones i may be pulling soon are running out of tomatoes worth while . 
    • That's too bad, did your garden get dried out at some point? You had a pretty good start to the season and had a jump on my garden.
