push button??

6 posts in this topic

Does any one know where I can get the push button thing-a-ma-jiggies that are inside of conduit for making poles shorter. For example, they are inside of the old conduit tent poles and they are inside of present day portable ice shacks to extend/shorten support poles. What are they called and where can I buy these. One pole has holes drilled in it and the other has the little silver push button. The push button is what I am looking for. Thank you!

Ah, button clips or tube clips or tent pole clips or snap buttons. Thanks!!! Now if I could only find a place (in the US) that sells them individually. If any one knows of such a place please let me know. Thanks again... I couldn't figure out what they were called, or now, where to buy them.

Otter will sell you some. Another option is Jay Soderbloom. He used to have some on hand. http://www.soderbloom.com

Search Valco snap buttons. They're in Ohio. I don't know if you can get them direct but they may have a local outlet. All sizes and shapes so you really need to know what will work for you.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.
