NOT as advertised!!
on December 11, 2010
The item pictured in this ad, IS NOT what was received. This appears to be the older kit.
Product Description- Amazon.com
215263 Features: Kit includes 2 Clevis pins, 2 split rings, 2 washers, 2 screws and 2 nuts Replace straps with the 2 included top straps, 1 heel strap, and 4 strap clips Specifications:
The MSR Snowshoe Maintenance Kit, I received is the newer one.
From cascadesigns.com the description is as follows:
MSR ® SNOWSHOE MAINTENANCE KIT
Offers complete and easy field maintainability of all MSR snowshoe binding pivot points and rivets.
Includes: Clevis Pin Assembly(2) Clevis Pins, (2) Split Rings, (2) Washers (4) strap clips, another pin with split ring and a zipper pull.
THERE ARE NO STRAPS, as the newer snowshoes use different ones.
I have the older snowshoe model, MSR Denali Evo Ascent, 2009 or 2008. I was hoping to get extra straps, just in case.
I even ordered from 2 different sites, and got the newer Maintenance kit from both.
Cascadedesigns.com sells the straps, MSR - Classic Snowshoe Strap 2 for $5.95, 12 inch or 18 inch lengths.
Bottom Line, DON'T ORDER THIS KIT, if you have older snowshoes, you're wasting your money and time..
