Re: [ksurfschool] Re: reel leash
I have been able to fix every reel leash that has ever been returned to me. I have sold hundreds of them.
The centre screw that will not come out of your reel leash must be stripped? I can't think of another reason for you not being able to get it out?
You should still be able to get the screw out, insert something thin and strong under the large ss washer, like a small steel ruler. Apply pressure to the washer as youn try to undo the screw in an anti-clockwise direction. Once you get it starting to unscrew, it will probably come out all the way without further pressure from the ruler under the washer.
If you were in Oz I would send you a secondhand spare case.

---Hi i use a real leash for the past couple of years with no broblem
till now. In one day the black strap broke 6 times at different
places. Now theres only of foot left of strap and i would like to
replace it but i cant open it completly. I remove the 4 little philips
screws plus two flat head screws, but the only one i cant remove is
the big center one. If i can't replace strap, the think is garbage.
Can someone give me any advice on how to open it, where to get new
proper strong strap.
As anybody have this problem before ? Thanks.
