    glue for traction mats???

    The little triangle type pad on the very rear right side of my ski is coming ondone. Is there a specific glue or adhesive I should use to put it back done? The other side seems weak... maybe I should just remove the little triangles from each side....

    Thoughts?

    Not sure what to use to stick it back down.....

    use Dap Weldwood contact cement. You can buy it at home depot, used it on all my hydro-turf mats...

    What's even better is if you have them order the "professional" Dap..it doesn't make the mats stretch. And those little black squares in the back are for the people who sit on the back and watch for those whom you are pulling/skiing. This is where they put their feet to brace themselves!

    And all of this time Harry had me convinced that is where you put your feet when you are stretched out for speed runs

    My mats suck also, set the ski out in the sun on the trailer and you can pull them up with no effort. There's adhesive there, but in the sun it softens like it never set up properly.

    Probably going to strip it and put Hydro Turf on this winter. These ski's are poorly assembled in every aspect. Decent engineeering, poorly executed when assembled.

    I lost one side before i even took delivery and the other side fell off by the end of one week.

    Dealer offered to replace but i said NAH..they will just fall off again.
