Slingshot Alien Air

Hi everyone. Great day on the water today (rode about 100ft). Thanks for all your encouragement....

Question - I noticed that my half strap was loose on the board - I think the mounting screws are to short. Any idea what would be the right length for slingshot 1/2 straps to this board? Thanks

NJ - same board (well it's a Slingshot drawfcraft) but same general setup with a front strap and I have the same issue and basically made the same progress yesterday.

I'm not sure I lost the piece that goes underneath the strap connecting the two screws, and I'm guessing that's the issue. I'm about to just put a full strap on.

If I recall correctly those are supposed to be #12 1" screws. On a thick board with strap thick washer I had 1.5" screws but be careful with extra length.

I went to home depot and made some screws from what I could find in the stainless. They worked well as best as I can tell. The size I settled on was 1/8 by 1.25. The original length was 1" and was to short.
