View Full Version : Christmas tree fastners

05-23-2012, 10:28 AM
my project http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/showthread.php?t=45317 is 90 pct completed, but I am having difficulty putting the bow bolster back on my 205V. i have hangers at the top and Christmas tree fasteners at the bottom. Viper installed threaded inserts at the bottom so the fasteners will not fit in and there is no way to use threaded studs at that location. my questions are two fold
1) Can I remove the threaded inserts and - if so - how?
2) is there a Christmas tree type fastener that has a threaded end so i can use the existing inserts?

You can go to napa and get pretty much any fastner. Bring the cushion and test. You can remove the thread easily........well maybe not so easily for some. Just unstaple the vinyl around the edge by the faster and the thread will pop out. Depending on what they used it may also be glued to the backside so you may need some pressure with screw driver to pop it out.

Hopefully that make sense
