Snap Modifications

Thunder Tiger Victoria Snap Modifications As supplied, the snaps have a shape that tend to wrench the deck eyelets out of the deck when tension is put on the lines. This occurs because the centerline of the snap is not aligned in the direction of the tension. A simple reforming of the snap Thunder Tiger Victoria Snap Modifications wires into a rounded shape will correct the problem. Better yet, a trip to the fishing section of Wal-Mart or a tackle shop will yield a new set of snaps that already have the rounded shape.

The picture at the right shows reformed original snaps. Note that the centerlines are in line with the rigging lines.

The picture at the left shows new snaps from Wal-Mart that already have a rounded shape.
