Business has been slow, so far- on these bolts.
Let me "sweeten the pot"-

If you are following this Rally event and unable to attend, and you have a friend coming to Myrtle Beach, I'll still make one for you that they can bring back home to you- .
Just provide me with the bolt length and what site it needs to go to.

Ah heck, if you need one mailed to you, just "hollar".
I stick them in a small padded envelop and I will shoot it out to you. Just "PM" (private message) me with mailing details and the length. They can't get hurt in the mail and if they get lost, I'll just send another-

Cheers,

Folks really should take you up on this generous offer. For the first time today, I snagged my jacket sleeve on that hex head door bolt. Fortunately, I did not rip the sleeve but came close. Had that been my naked arm, I am sure there would have been some blood letting

As soon as we can get our coach back from Cruising America RV, I'll be measuring that bolt for a Max "tooled-with-love" replacement.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Please let me buy one or get one sent via snail mail.

Please let me buy one for my 2014 Newmar Canyon Star 3956. I have a torn shirt and a friend with some skin missing. I will not be able to go to the rally and have no close friends going to the rally. Please reply asap thanks John from johnsadventure

If your tired of getting your clothes ripped, or worse even getting an injury, let me make you one of my "Snagless" Door Striker Bolts. I'm planning to be at the Myrtle Beach, SC rally in September and I will provide one for your rig, free of charge- if you wish.

Here is a picture of my new "Snagless" bolt and the original bolt, side by side.





I will need two questions answered from you here on this thread, so that I can start making them now for the September Rally.

Here is a sketch of what I need from you-



#1- The length of your existing bolt- To the nearest 1/16" of an inch

#2- Your site number.


If you would also like me to install it for you, please indicate that in your answer too. It takes about two minutes for me to install one.

I'm not sure of what our "extra event" (the Bride- Cindy and I) schedule will be like, but I am sure I will be able to get to everyone during the week of the rally. I plan on having a golf cart to get around.

I will be at Site H-27, so I've been told. If that doesn't happen, just ask Mike P, aka "Driver", where I am.


Here is the history of how this all came about--

After tearing a shirt and a jacket some years ago, I woke up in bed at about 2 am, with this new design in my head. I said to myself, before I forget it, I better get out to my little shop and make one. And so I did.

I started a thread here on irv2 and "Oemy", aka Dale Olsen, jumped right in on this. He said he was mad at me "because he hadn't thought of it". Oh well- ha,ha.
Here is a link to Oemy's site and our combined efforts to get these out to our RV'n buddies.

Now, why free you ask? Read on--

I had contacted a patent attorney in the Washington DC area years ago, a nice fellow I guess, an he told me to send him some sketches and $10,000 to start the patent process. He said "no guarantee of success and that he might need more money later". Now that didn't make much sense to me, since I was already making them and installing them free! I would also have to start a business, pay taxes, insurance, etc, etc .

I grew up in a small machine shop in Long Island, NY, before I went into a career in aviation in the USAF, and Corporate flying later.

I have acquired the equipment over the years to do this kind of work.

As an added benefit, my "Snagless" bolts have solved some annoying door rattles in both gas and diesel motor homes. In fact, the last two I did recently, have resulted in long time rattles to be gone- . I can explain why this happens if you ask me at the rally.

I also remember an occasion in Maine, about two years ago, where an elderly couple (in their 80's) had just downsized from a 40' DP to a new "Born Free" Class "C" motor home with one of the "original" hex head door striker bolts on it. As I handed her some Lobsters in a sack they had ordered for dinner, up her stairs, I asked if that miserable bolt had ever snagged you folks? He came over to the steps and immediately said "it cut her arm recently and we're both on "Coumadin"- . After I installed one of my bolts she said "It doesn't even have any sharp edges on it"- Ha,ha.

So I guess I do it for free, because "I CAN"- simple as that-

Just remember- you don't have to take one.

Hi John-

Send me your mailing address and the length of your existing bolt via PM. I also answered you by PM.

I'd be honored to send you one on Monday- Got to prevent injuries caused by this OEM bolt to my RV'n buddies-

Cheers,

Max, we just picked up our new (first) coach last week and I've already snagged my jacket! We'd love to take you up on your generous offer. Our measurement is 7/8" and we're in H-58. Looking forward to meeting you...

Thanks,
Mike

and will be on HH18.
Thanks in advance

Jim

Hey there Jim--

Some DP's have two door striker bolts.
Just give me the lengths of both of them--

We spent our last 9 years (in the summers) in coastal Maine. We loved (almost) every minute there- It looks, to me, like your near Carrabassett Valley ski academy.
For those who don't know what they do there, when the snow falls, they head to the hills, ha-ha. We had the pleasure of hosting each new freshman class at our RV park as a couple of professors carry the new class of kids in two small buses- one is for the kids, and one is for luggage and camping gear, on an orientation trip across Maine. Bode Miller, Alpine overall World Champion and Olympic gold medal winner is a graduate of Carrabassett Valley Academy. We always looked forward to them coming each year.

We'll see you in Myrtle Beach in September--

We live about 140 miles south of Carrabassett valley near Ossippee NH, Maine is
a great place to live if you can take the cold weather, we love it.
Next time you plan to be up here let know and maybe we can get together.

The striker bolts are both 7/8

Jim

Jim-

I got you covered- .

Nope, no living in Maine for the winter for us. We lived in Michigan for almost 10 years. I promised myself that you will never look in the daily newspaper and see my name in the obituaries because of shoveling snow. I saw that every year when we were up there. The other thing I will never do is ride a snowmobile across a "frozen lake"-
