I am considering using plastic stud backers on my new sled this year. Just wondering if anyone has had any experience with them, good or bad? Any info would be appreciated, including instalation tips and so forth. Thanks.
Right, don't use the kind with the nut built in. They key is to not overtorque or undertorque the nuts. I looked at all the stud companies web sites and only 1 gives a torque spec of 35 INCH lbs,so that is what I went by. I have square plastic backers and have had no problems and none of them have turned on me either.
I didn't have a torque spec either when I installed mine. I just stopped tightening when the stud plate was indented into the track a little. Sort of flush with the track. I haven't had a pullthrough so I guess I did it right.
