    Shop around SLC with rivet press?

    The cuff rivets on my Zero Gs have developed tons of play. Someone in the Zero G thread mentioned they were able to have the rivets pressed to fix the issue. Anyone know of a shop around SLC / Park City that has a press capable of that?

    Got a pic of what you're talking about?

    Are you talking about the pivot point between the lower portion and the upper cuff? Or a rivet that holds the power strap on the boot?

    Big C clamp, some sockets, and a second pair of hands to hold it steady?

    A few years ago the The Sport Loft on Highland was the only place capable of pressing the cuff rivets on my Dynafit boots. A couple of other places said they could do it over the phone but when I brought the boots in they couldn't.

    I haven't checked with them, but I would'nt be surprised if skimo.co can now do it too. With Dynafit boots you can also send them to Boulder CO and they'll do it for free (at the time) but there's a several week turnaround time. If all else fails Technica probably has a service center somewhere in America, maybe even in Utah.

    That was going to be my suggestion. You can get a ton, quite literally, from a big c clamp.

    Thanks for the replies. I called Sport Loft they said they can do it, just need to get down there. Of course now it's snowing and I don't want to leave my boots... I'll post what I find out
