Anyone else have an issue with the Voile Tip clip (or tail) shaking undone when riding? It seems to happen all the time for me. When I first got the board it was snug but after much love its gotten all loosey goosey. My friend has the same problem.
Besides a little duct tape, is there a more permanent solution?
I have a new prior that wouldn't stay clipped for more than three turns. Turns out some of their boards were made with the clip and the t-nut too close together. This results in a 2-3mm gap between board halves at the tip, which doesn't keep enough tension on the clip.
I first solved this with a small bead of solder on one edge to keep the gap open, or to hold the two board halves apart to keep tension on the clip. The solder was too soft for a long term fix, but an easy, removable test. If it tests out ok, re-do it with something like JB Weld.
Of course, your problem might be completely different.
