Seriously what's stopping Atomic from using normal fuckin torx screws to hold boot straps on.
Why do they have to rivet these fuckin things on and make it incredibly aggravating to take them out.
I just want to swap out my booster straps onto my new boots. Shouldn't be this hard ffs I'm losing my shit
Yes - I tried drilling them out. As you can already tell from the mangled rivet on the right. It keeps spinning with the drill bit, then the plastic gets really hot ( yea I could use oil but that's not going to help much). It's going to fuck the plastic up with the excessive heat, so I'm not trying that again. Then I got really mad and went at it with a pair of tin snips, side cutters, linesman... obviously didn't work. If anything it probably fucked up the plastic even more trying to pry the things off.
So yea. I was pretty heated. Gave it a couple weeks. Now I'm chill... Might be ready to take these rivets on again. I've got a bit more patience.... Pls help me guys or I will explode
