    Wow…what can say about Black Diamond. They didn’t make skin glue (BD Label) last year, and this year they are but it is not coming out until Jan. 15th. WTF??? :nononno:

    I guess they expect everyone to throw away their skins after every year and purchase new ones. Can you tell I am pissed? If not, I am mad especially after dealing with skin issues in -25 weather yesterday and getting burned on the up by skin issues (yes…I had good skin management and put them next to my body to warm em).

    Soooo…I have called EVERY shop and nobody has any Black Diamond Gold Label glue so I can re-glue my skins. Does anyone out there have any glue that I can purchase? Please help a brother out.

    I swung by a local store at lunch today. No glue. Not surprised though. If I have a chance, I’ll stop by the local shop by my house. I think they still have some. I’ll let you know.

    Thanks man. I cannot believe that nobody has any. Crazy. If you find some, definitely let me know. I am more than happy to pay shipping and for the glue.

    I checked up here and everyone is sold out of the glue. I did find something called Black Diamond Glue Renew Iron-On Transfer.

    Would that work?

    For some reason, they won’t ship that product or the BD glue outside of Canada, but if you’re in dire straits, we can work something out.

    Thanks,
    Looks like Killzclimbz may have me covered and a few nice folks from TGR have some that they bought a while back. If those sources do not come through, I will let you know for sure. I kinda want to stay away from the iron on sheets because I have heard they are not as good. I like the glue because I can glop it on thick for that extra stick.

    I’m hording the little bit I have left. Hope you get some Wyo.

    I do have a set of the iron on glue sheets if anyone wants them. I found they were a hassle, esp. doing split skins because they are not cut wide enough.

    In a reversal of the “won’t ship to Canada” trend we see on many websites, it appears MEC won’t ship outside of Canada on this product:
    gold label skin glue

    but if you can get someone to reship it for you, or you can get a Canadian maildrop, you’re “golden”.

    I checked that glue first, but it is back ordered at every MEC in the country .. hence my offer to reship the iron-on. 🙂

    Well I gave it a try for you and the shop didn’t have any. There is one more place that I will give a call today. They are Downtown and I’ll be in the area for the Avs game tomorrow night. So if they have some I’ll get it, though I have to say, it’s not looking good.

    Well, I called that spot and no dice. They don’t even carry BD. WTF? I thought for sure the shop by my house would have it, as they don’t really move much BC gear, so it stays on the shelves forever. Sorry man.

    I’ve been trying to get some glue for quite a while here in Oregon as well. The local rep at Bergs said the glue ingredients are on the watch list for terrorist products and that’s why BD hasn’t been able to manufacture any more (or ship) recently :doobie: Apparently some manufacturers have even been having trouble producing new skins because of the glue on the skins :doobie: It’s been a few months now and still no luck………..maybe Al Queda was buying too much of this product…………..:doobie:

    stoudema-Black Diamond will be shipping glue to retailers around Jan. 15th. I guess it has changed packaging, but that is hearsay. Crazy how important some sticky stuff is and so hard to get. Looks like the wait will be over soon. Called a shop in Golden and they want $75.00 to reglue skins. A can costs $15.00 and you get the benefits of the fumes :scratch: Nothing like DYI.

    Wyo- I got a little bit left that I’d send you if it is critical. Jan 15 is a ways off.

    Will the Fed’s get me for shipping explosives?

    I’m not sure what sort of condition your glue is in but could you give them a rejuvenation to see them through until the 15th? check my post from this thread:

    Thanks guys. Just got some from a TGR mag in Jackson in the mail today. He had an unopened jar. Looks like I am covered! Thanks for all of the help.

    Glad you got it sorted .. i’d hate to be picked up for sending terroristic materials across our shared border. 😛

    As for the sticky stuff .. BC or nuthin’! 😉
