Forums DIY and Mods Installing Karakoram tip clips Viewing 2 posts - 1 through 2 (of 2 total) Author Posts January 9, 2017 at 8:54 am #798184 solidbored 54 Posts So yesterday, I skinned out to Hellbrook (Stowe/Mt Mansfield), and near the end of the descent I noticed a small branch was between the two halves. I looked up at the nose of the board and saw that the Voile tip clip had broken off and I was now snowboarding down with a split nose both independently flopping around in the snow. I am sure this same freaky thing has happened to a lot of riders. Clearly this is bad for future touring so I’ll need to replace the tip clips. K seems to make better ones than V, so I’m planning to go with those. Simple enough. But I am not a DIY guy, so here is my question. Do I need to reinstall the rivets? And if so, what tools do I need to install rivets? http://www.backcountry.com/karakoram-tip-tail-clips-with-rivets?rr=t January 9, 2017 at 9:01 am #798186 SkateBananas 178 Posts Never seen that happen. I have used both and one is not better than the other. I would go with whatever is cheaper. As for install I know that the voile ones come with some rivets that can be installed with just a ball peen hammer. I prefer to use a regular rivet gun and proper rivets for a better install.
