Somehow one of threads on my Northwave shoes came away whilst tightening.

Anyone here used the 3 bolts system with only 2 bolts?


  • I don't no if they will hold ,but you could try retapping the hole a size up and fitting a new bolt ,shoe liner might be
    removable so you don't damage it if you have to drill the old bolt out, just use the tap with a bit of lubrication candle
    wax will do, should go through easily for every 1/4 turn clockwise turn a 1/4 anticlockwise to remove the swarfe its
    only thin plate so it should not take long.
