I don't know how big they are, but probably easy enough to replace with a pop-rivet tool ($5-10 for a cheap kit). Else replace with a nut and bolt with the permanent version of lok-tite and/or glue.

It would be wise to find out why it is under strain at that point, but remember these are made of soft plastic and designed so they can stack like garbage cans for shipping (final assembly at store or at home) so it might not be put together quite straight.

How do you get to the starter spring on a Craftsman 358.797770

If the cover where the rope winds up has pop rivets, then get a pop rivet tool and some replacement pop rivets of the correct diameter before you drill out the rivets in the cover. If the cover has bolts holding it on, then just remove the bolts to uncover the the whole mechanism.

Replacing the pull cord on a scott bonnar sx4000

Home Depot and other home improvement stores sell universal replacement pull cords for less that 4 dollars. Instructions are on the bag. Look at the screen covering the pull cord to see if it is bolted on or pop riveted. If it's pop riveted you'll have to drill out the rivets to get at the cord. Have a pop rivet tool and the proper sized rivets ready to re install the cover

Repair lawn mower pull cord

Home Depot sells a replacement pull cord kit that has great instructions. My mower, however, had pop rivets holding the cover on the engine, so if yours does too, get a pop rivet tool with the correct size pop rivets before you start drilling out the old pop rivets.

Gunwale replacment old town discovery 169

The yoke is easy -- measure the exact length and buy a new one that you find comfortable from your local dealer or outfitter. Just bolt it in place.

The gunwale is a bigger job, and depends on what it is made of, but a discussion with your local Old Town dealer will help figure that out.

One of the rivets on the cross mechanism has broken off. How do I get this repaired? We bought the pram in November 2009.

Two solutions:
Traditional requires removing the damaged rivet.. at times this requires drilling the remains of the damaged rivet out.. Most of these rivets are "Pop Rivets". You need a Pop Rivet tool and of course the new rivet. The alternative to purchasing the tool and the appropriate size rivet. (Some hardware stores sell the rivets in different sizes by the each). Take the stroller to a sheet metal shop (Furnace A/C installer) or a Auto Body Shop.. both places will have the Pop Rivet tool and probably boxes of rivets.. if the old rivet is missing completely..and they have the right rivet and's a 10 second repair.

The other alternative.. is a fastener type referred to as "Well Nuts".. this is a rivet like device that you can install yourself.. two pieces.. a threaded insert..and the threaded mate. It looks a lot like a rivet when installed.. usually no special tools required. Good hardware stores may have them.. and it may just do the job.

Most of these rivets on your type of stroller are located in places that require them to be as flush as possible for obvious reasons.. folding.. and safety. If this one is not subject to either. A simple round head phillips screw of the right length and self locking acorn nut will suffice.

Best of Luck

Royalex canoe -wood trim. I live in Canada down to -35F. this winter. I forgot to loosen screws ongunnels. I now have completely through vertical cracks through screw holes in royalex. Suggestions?

Are there washers on the plastic side of this boat? You could get some stainless finish washers to grab the plastic instead of just the screw head. I'm not really sure what you have there without seeing it, If it is that bad, you could also take another piece of wood, to match the gunwale on the outside and put one on the inside. Then drill some neat holes and run screws into the thicker one. I have a strip canoe, with the 2 gunwales, and have no problems with draining the boat or anything like that. Of course we don't freeze down here.
