The pin in my slide is but 1/8" dia. You found #6 screws with an unthreaded portion the correct length? Did you have to cut off some of the thread or do you have threads inside the lower slide boss?

Re: Strong Sail Track and Slide System

Nope, got them the correct length - the threads start exactly at the bottom end of the slide boss. These are the ones: McMaster-Carr

BTW, are you sure yours is 1/8" and not 3/16"? Ours are 3/16", but we have the older style bronze slides and not the newer stainless ones, so the dimensions may be different.

Re: Strong Sail Track and Slide System

I have had a Strong Track system on my SC 39 for 10 years now. The only problem I have is the pins in the slides. The caps are corroding off. I have lost six so far and am trying to get new ones made here in New Zealand. I have attempted to contact them once and will try yet again...

Re: Strong Sail Track and Slide System

The pins in mine have holes and cotter pins. Not yours?
