Rated 2 out of 5 by Lukej from Not Black Diamond Quality I bought these to add some tail clips to my STD skins that I bought new, but they didn’t hold up. I followed the directions for installation, but after about 3 outing with these they ripped right out of the skins. Granted, I was pulling my skins off with these, but they simply ripped through the skin material with the rivets still together. Overall, I was expecting better quality from Black Diamond and didn’t receive it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Davy from Works great I have put these on 4 pairs of skins. They are fairly easy to install. Note: On one pair, that have a sewn-in tip loop, I failed to cut the skin short enough which doesn't allow the stretch in the tail adjuster wanted. Be nice to be able to get a rivet set so i can redo these.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MateoM from Simple way to add a tail connection to your skins We bought some skins on sale for my son who is still growing and, thus, we keep him on improvised gear for the time being. The skins did not have a tail connection and that was a problem on our hut trip. This kit solved the problem and kept things affordable. Be sure to read the 'tools required' list first, a couple items may not be commonly on-hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dave from They do the job They keep my skins attached to the tail end of my skis. Not much else to be said.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mountain builder from Great replacement strap These adjustable replacement tail straps worked great to replace some rigid tail hooks on a pair of skins that were too short. They were easy to install with minimal tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by banerjek from Solid, install process is so so As others have stated, these are very solid and easy to use. They took a little longer to install than expected. Getting the rivets through the skins was a bit of a pain -- I'd recommend using a drill of exactly the right size rather than a nail as indicated in the instructions. If you need tails, just buy these and don't look back. You won't regret it
