    Re: lift rod covers

    Now there is no longer the need to have a second person
    assist when installing a rubber ball lift rod cover. Simply
    attach the tool’s quick disconnect fitting to an air
    compressor and insert the adapter at the other end of the
    tool into the end of the rod cover. Control the air flow with
    the convenient foot control while having both your hands
    free to guide the cover on to your lift rods. This convenient
    tool comes with a 6 foot inlet and 6 foot outlet hose to allow
    plenty of unrestricted work area.

      I use the urethane rod covers as they have been on about 9 years and still look great. They slip right on and easy to rotate once on so they last longer.
      I have the air tool mentioned above and it does work but would suggest investing in the urethane covers so you only need to change them once every 10 years or so.

          No one seems to make urethane or foam covers for A's lift rods,

            Re: lift rod covers

            Having m.s. there are alot of things that I cannot do now and most things are 10 times harder than they used to be. I pretty much cant us my right hand very well so I have had to fine different ways to do things. I have always used an air compressor attached to the cover, cleaned the rods well, and put baby powder on the rods and inside the cover. I do not have a foot pedal tool but plan on getting one. Even with someone working the air hose for me I no longer have the strength to pull the cover on. The other day I saw 2 covers that needed to be replaced so I cut them off and got everything ready to blow on when my night man arrived. Then I remembered a tool I saw years ago to put on covers. The closest thing I could find was a cast jogger arm without the large end bearing but with both internal snap rings still in it. Slipped it over the rod cover and blew the cover up to the top turn ,used the air with my bad hand and used the jogger arm to grip and ratchet the cover over the top and the rest of the way down. Finished that one and went and did the other. If I had a foot pedal I could say I did it one handed. It in no way was as easy as having 2 strong arms but for anyone that has trouble it might be something you might try.

              that foot petal tool is probaly very nice, but we have priced it at over $100.
              here's what i did. went to home depot, bought some pipe fittings that fit inside the rod rubber, a little t-valve quick shut off. put them together, hook 'em to your compressor. its not a 1 handed tool, but its great for the price of about $10

                10 Years? Man I missed the boat on that. The last few years, the old tan gum rubber just doesnt seem to be holding up like it used to in the past. I think I will have to give them another look at. What about rocket rails ??

                    I've used them on one lane. They seemed to work well, however the center burnt down before I could judge their longevity.

                    Only complaint was that the zip ties tended to break more often than I liked.

                      Instead of baby powder I started using a product called glide. It comes in a can that you attach a spray bottle nozzle to. I shoot some on the lift rod and down into the new cover. With this stuff you can almost push it on without using air. I've been using it for a couple of years now. I haven't seen any sign of premature splitting due to the product eating the inside of cover.
