Bunny boots into wading boots.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I didn't want to spend a ton on wading boots, so with some effort I screwed these into a pair of old military surplus bunny boots. They gave my beat up old boots great traction in the river. After using them nearly every day for a month I had only one fall out. The kit came with plenty of studs, though, so I have lots of replacements.
Any reason I can't throw these in an old...
Any reason I can't throw these in an old pair of running shoes? My budget says no way on wading boots! Also, whats the difference between these and some screws I can pick up from the hardware store for a few bucks...
Sheet rock screws from the hardwear store might work ok. Not that it's rocket science, but these threads on these are designed to hold well in soft rubber.
i have tried sheet metal screws from the hardware store, first the shortest they sold were too long so I had to grind them down, and secondly they all fell out because the threads were not the right size/shape. My brother got the expensive screws from sims, and hasn't lost one yet , I'll buy these, I bet they work better
I work in sheet metal and can tell you that they are nothing more than sheet metal screws. They look like #8 or #10 type AB. You can find them all over the internet in different lengths and materials/hardness (stainless, zinc plated, etc) for a fraction of the price. Dab a little glue on them if you are worried they will fall out.
