New WB RO Pin?
« on: September 28, 2017, 07:30:01 PM »
How about a new design for the WB RO pin.
The pistol one I think is a pain being a single pin that twirls around on your gear and eventually drops off.
I've lost two now and SASS want $10.00 plus tax every time for a another one.
How about a decent double pin one based or similar to the CAS one, make it red or some other color.
Maybe we should have a design competition for the new one, but the old one should go?? :'( :) :)
Just my 2 cents pards.

Use a plastic keeper similar to the ones that hold earrings on and you won't lose them. Those metal things that go on the studs don't work well at all.

Places that sell motorcycle clothing and accessories also have these sleeves that do over the pin in place of the back and they have a lock screw to keep them in place.

I do agree with your thoughts, though.

Jackeroo, these may be the keepers to which Branchwater Jack is referring:

Yea I have seen them, but I still think we can come up with a better RO pin than that.??
Must have 2 pins to stop it twirling around and looking untidy.
And something with WBAS on it, something similar to the SASS RO pin.  Maybe in red or blue.
