Hi all.

After a 5 year gap, I'm going to hit the banks again this or next week.

Before my break I'd had to have a couple of seat box (corner blocks) replaced on my daiwa 150 SB box under warranty.


Time doesn't seem to have been kind to the others and they're slipping.
Daiwa don't have stock of the blocks and a Google search didn't return much.
Anyone know where else I might get some or how to fashion a temporary repair to stop the slipping if not?

Thanks, Robin

The knuckles look pretty much generic to me so maybe if you post the dimensions of the frame that inserts into the knuckle someone may have another branded box that you might be able to buy replacements for.

Put a Jubilee clip round the leg, under the block and tighten as tight as you can without stripping the clip. That should stop them slipping until you can get new blocks.

Thanks for the replies and suggestions. I knew md would come good!

The legs are c. 24mm
The frame that goes into the blocks are c 34x16mm, although that's approximate.
