    Re: rubber bin inserts

    Well, if you're talking about the little rubber bumpers on the tips of the guide straps, wet the back of the knot with a little Vaseline or silicone, press down & twist them in. (don't use grease... it degrades the rubber grommet, and they'll just soften and fall out after a while. A small amount of rubber cement or silicone sealant brushed on to the back of them helps to hold them a bit better.

    If you're talking about the pin deflector rubber mounts, there is no easy way... just grit your teeth, curse a lot, and get it done. The only thing that makes it a little easier is to grind down the outer edge of a 7/16" socket and taper the tip of it a bit so it'll fit into the indentations on the stringers a little easier. Having a long, thin 'pancake' wrench helps, too... it can get between the deflector and stringer a little easier. If you don't have one, make one... just pick up an inexpensive 'long reach' wrench, and thin it up a little on the trusty grinder.

We've got them a few places on our bins, but they seem to be quite a bit less stiff than the others.... I wouldnt sugguest using them on the 9 pin pocket, but they're nice otherwise [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

        Do not replace them....just a waste of time......they cause pins to fall on spotting...and the pins to not get scratched that much in the bins.
