On the base side of your board, locate the mushroomed side of the rivet, drill thru the rivet with a drill corresponding to the diameter of the new rivet.. you can also drill the head down with a larger drill say 1/2"to weaken the rivet. I did this last night. ..ill try to upload pics
Sorry no pics of the drilling action, but drill the rivet out. The OD Of the rivet is 0.18 0.1820" in diameter, so you can need or use in 11/64 or 3/16 drill bit to drill the core out of the rivet.
you'll need a punch and ball pein hammer to set the rivet
If I do it again, I want to get the correct rivet clenching tool so they come out nice(r)!
Richie, How did you make out with replacing the tail clip? Did you get the replacememnt from karakoram? The reason I ask is that the tail clip on my board broke too. It was the second day on the board. Was your board new also? I wonder if Karakoram has a problem with it's clips because the plastic seems to be more ridgid than the voile clips on my other board. Does anyone else have some insight into this? Thanks
