    Apr 7, 2009, 6:13 PM - Boot Spikes HELP! #1

    So after all of 2 marches in my Boba I have lost one full set of spikes and the spike off one toe. Any suggestions on someone who sells spikes that won't easily break off? Thanks!!!!

    I have a set of RussRep's as well. Just be sure and put some loctite on them. Otherwise, they, too, can back out and fall off.

    Loctite is used for screws and fasteners to make sure they don't loosen. There are permanent and non-permanent versions. Don't put too much. It's blue so you can see how much you put on. It doesn't expand or anything. I just used the non-permanent stuff as that's what I had for other projects.

    Fenix Props was what I had. The ones I got were welded on not screwed to the braces. Thanks everyone. I will see what russrep has.

    I have a set of the Fenix ones and I ended up using loctite on them as well. The first troop saw them move around even after I made sure they were very tight. I even considered getting my mig welder out and putting a small touch weld on the bottom but the loctite has been sweet so far.
