    Sumo Boot prop fixing

    Hi can people post some pictures of how they attached the top fixing of the boot prop? I have the normal prop from Pilgrim but I'm worried that the weight of the boot will just strip out the fixing.

    Cheers,

    Hope these help. It isn't very strong, but does the job. You wouldn't want to lean on it

    Have Fun

    I did mine like this ...

    I had to cut a small slit in the carpet to feed the arm through, seems to do the job, feels quite secure too, but as above, DON'T lean on it

    Hi thanks for the pictures. It was the top of the prop that worried me where you screw or rivet into the boot lid.

    Hopefully you can see from my last picture. It is riveted into the side of the big thick "lip" on the boot.

    I never felt the prop on my sumo was any good so ended up putting one each side. So much better and felt less flimsy.

    I have a much sophisticated solution... a length of black plastic tube, shaped at each end... clips in nicely between the handle and the boot jam/lock pin

    I have been employing the broom handle approach until I twated my head!

    Golf club shaft for me, it swings down and is held by a clip on the boot catch
