    Default Help with the powerscender I just bought.

    I bought a used Powerscender from someone in another forum for my Klein spurs.
    Just got it in the mail today and the main pivot rivet on has been pulled through the back plate.
    If I grab the foot ascender and twist it back and forth there is some play in it.
    I asked this person multiple times about the condition of the rivets and was told they look great.
    I bought a new HAAS adapter from Tree stuff to go with it.
    They both arrived today (with my new buckingham velcro lower straps ) and I was so psyched to get them mounted.
    Now I totally bummed out.

    I PMd the guy and I'm still waiting to hear back.
    I do know a few other guys had issues with the rivets breaking on them from the reviews on TS and were able to get them replaced.
    I bought mine used so I guess I'm out of luck.
    Is there a place I can send them off to get repaired or a method anyone is aware of that I can do to fix it myself ?

    A grade 8 bolt would be my best suggestion.
    The further a society shifts from truth the more it will hate those who speak it.

    Ill bet mike powers would fix it for you, worth a shot. If not, any fab shop should have the correct rivet gun and rivet and be able to set you up for a few bucks

    A bolt should work and you're love the lower velcro straps.
