Does anyone have any tips on where to find big holds that screw in (rather than bolt in). Need to pretty easy to hold (its for kids to climb as a one off, not training or the like) but also have to be screw ins as bolt ins wont do the job. Also the cheaper the better but it costs what it costs at the end of the day

Thanks in advance

Probably not ideal as they ship from the US, but Atomik have a massive range of screw on holds. Holds themselves are ok, but nothing special. The texture seems to wear pretty quickly on some of the footholds we have.

Otherwise 'The Project' in Poole is a bouldering wall that only uses screw on holds as their walls aren't t-nutted, so you could pop them a message and ask what brands they use.

Core who are UK based also do their mini font jugs in screw on. Probably ok for kids but they're not massive holds.

Just get any holds you want and drill into them.

Holdz.co.uk have some large holds which are both bolt or screw-on - but I suspect you're in the opposite situation I'm in. e.g. https://www.holdz.co.uk/collections/new/products/big-edges

I'm after small bolt-on's as I don't want to screw into my home-wall too often, but obviously smaller holds tend to be screw-on's, and likewise larger holds tend to be bolt-on's.

Volumes are usually screw-ins, but not cheap and probably too large for your needs.

If indoors, look at wooden holds from Crusher or Beastmaker?

I have a set of these Stonesmith holds which I was going to suggest as they're really good and pretty big for screw-ons:

... but I see they're not manufacturing just now.

Another alternative would be to make your own wooden ones, it's very easy to do and you get exactly what you want.

Thanks for the replies folks. Looks like we'll be going down the wooden hold route mainly guided by budget unfortunately

Sorry not helping OP, but for yourself looking for small bolt ons, try flatholds, I'm sure they have a few series containing small stuff that are bolt on.
