Hi there I have run into a snag with my longshot superclip. It was working but every so often I would have to re-tape the clip back together because it would break. Anyone have any suggestions about how to perminatly fix my superclip?

You didn't reinforce it at all?

Well, on the outside of the clips, on the side with the hole for checking the amount of darts, there are three reinforcement lines running straight down. Two on the right side, one on the left, a thicker one in the middle.

Now, between the thick one and the thinner lines on either side, there is a perfectly flat space (once they are cut down).

Isn't that just begging - BEGGING! - for a strip of brass?

Cut one slightly smaller than that space, and hammer it flat. Make four of these and glue them on, two on each side.

Ta-da!

Edit: How do you embed pictures?

Just use some superglue. I've had a superclip I used Loctite on for years and it hasn't come apart yet.

Get a Photobucket account and upload your pics there, then when you post in a forum, go to your uploaded photobuckets pic and select IMG link and copy and paste it into your post

For future reference, silicone is a sealant, not an adhesive.
