I'm feeling a little old-school with my K2 Clicker set-up but if anyone else is riding them, you might enjoy seeing this modification. Preserved some of the original set-up, all the functionality, and added a llittle stainless steel. All the main bolts screw into t-nuts and are "mashed" after installation so they cannot back out. A machinist friend of mine did it for me. The pins are attached to the narrow plate with nylon fishing line. Reduced the complete weight by 500g. Now I just need to get splittin'!

Steve P, nice modification, it looks very durable. I would like to modify my clickers in that way. Might your machinist friend be interested in making another set or two for whatever $ would make it worthwhile? I barely have time to ride this year, even less for tinkering with gear.

Steve/bcr- if you grind off or drill through the heads holding the clicker hardware on, do you then just unscrew from the underside and then replace the screws with longer ones? Did you just use a stainless steel screw and then hammer the end of the screw flat?

I'm pretty sure my friend would be happy to help you. I don't know how he removed original hardware but I told him i'd f@%$#% break my leg if he didn't do a good job - he did a good job :D . He's pro - I trust him. PM me if you're still interested and I'll find out what he'd charge. A very minor mod to the plastic puck was required to - to make clearance for some of the t-nuts. Steve

Search for K2 Clicker boots and you'll see them. Unfortunately, I don't think they are manufactured anymore but you can find quite a few on e-bay. Steve
