#1 Ball joint boot clips

Post by Monkeyfinger » Mon Nov 12, 2018 7:24 pm

Not a hugely technical question, but supplied to fit the original style balljoint boots is a simple wire clip with a loop each end. Can anyone enlighten me as to any clever way to fit these? I had to reshape the ends last time I fitted one, but that doesn't seem correct. All answers welcome...

Hi Richard the new ones are a bit soft and not so much of a spring as the old ones....wright or wrong i just streached the loops a bit and droped one over the other..if that makes sense.....so just used it as a wire tie with half a twist....Steve
