/ DMM Terminators antiball plates.
I have the little c type fixings but can not get them to attach to the crampon sides securly.
I put them on and then wrapped a load of duck tape around them. This has the added 'hard man' advantage of looking like you're climbing in crampons held together with sellotape!
> Any thoughts?
That you must be doing something wrong? Don't know what but my antiballing plates have been on my terminators for hundreds of days of use over many years. Very occasionally one clip comes off, but there are lots of others still on. I just push the one back on when I notice it has happened.
The clips take a fair ammount of messing about , but they are worth while placing them in. I have had a few clips break off and a few holes tear through the balling plates. I have used thin cable ties to patch them back together , and carry a few spares with me on the hill , just in case of emergency .
