    Re: Urethene Foam Lift Rod Cover

    To answer your question I have used the foam lift rod covers and I am very happy with them. We have a very high lineage center and I put new covers on one lane over 6 months ago and they work fine and they still look just like new. They are pretty hard to put on. I put them on just like the rubber ones. Clean and paint the rods,put baby powder on the rods and inside the covers. Then use an air compressor and put the first one on the long rod as far as you can,then tape the next rod cover to the first,so the air doesn't leak and push hard. You're going to have to have someone help you because they go on very hard.I leave the rod cover on the top of the corners and so far there isn't any wear at all. GOOD LUCK!

      Can't believe you had so much trouble getting the new covers on. To quote Brunswick "So incredibly flexable and easy to install, you can even do it yourself!"
      Guess they really never tried to install a set.

        Hooboy, I haven't tried changing any, yet, and the Boss says it can be a real bugger. BUT, I have an idea or 2 and plan to check them out. If I can find an easier way I'll let it be known, in the mean time I'll just hope for the best...

                  p/n= 90-400048-006 18" for $45.95. requires 3 per rod for complete coverage.

                  Looks expensive to me, but if they work well they will be worth the cost.

                    i bought 2 sets. went to install first pair and it exploded on me [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/frown.gif[/img] . so only got to do one lift rod. it went on this time pretty easy but i got to put wire tie the cover where its two pieces(they spread apart).

                    i personally dont care for em. look good on the sbe's though.

                      vantage also has a lift rod cover all you have to do is cut your old foam off and take some dish soap and wipe on the rods and pour a little into the holes and slides right on if you have two people only takes a few minutes to do. they only sell them in pairs &amp; there kind of expensive but well worth the money

                        Be Careful when using liquids to aid in installing covers. The rods will rust and make it nearly impossible to rotate the covers when they become worn. Replacement becomes extremely difficult as well.
