OldSchoolGoalie Posted October 6, 2022 Share Posted October 6, 2022 Many years ago I remember a post and it might have been on the old goalieboard forums where someone had a setup where they could easily swap out buckles in the event they would break but it wasn't a dual sided one if I recall. I cannot find an cached version anywhere. I'm thinking about just swapping out all my leather straps (not sure about the bootstrap and how that would work with nylon). My main concern is being able to replace the plastic buckles in the event they break from a shot, or dropping down, anything really. The only thing I can think of off the bat is this: I'm trying to avoid the situation where I have the one end sewed in: Now I haven't done this set up before, however prior for my inline pads I actually had the shop just install nylon straps with the buckles but they were sewed in. It was just so quick and easy to get more fine adjustments than leather. Also lasted me a few years and no problems. I also assume I need one of these on each side before the buckle? Thanks for any help! I can probably do this myself as I have a Speedy Stitcher Sewing Awl and a bunch of sewing stuff. For the bootstrap part I could leave the leather if nylon won't work, but maybe it might be a good time to just try toe ties? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
