I've been using Easy Wrappe Pro bars for a couple of years now and lately have run into problems with some of the corner braces falling out after a few months even though they were fully pounded in when I did the wrap. Anyone else experience this and, if so, what's been your solution?

ken doo,
Phil, I haven't experienced corner braces falling out. You might try a spot of glue, but the problem there is you then lose the ability to tap the corner braces in to readjust tension at a later time.  My suggestion would be to lightly moisten (dip) the corner brace ends with water before tapping in with a rubber mallet.  This should slightly expand the wood and increase friction, and tighten the corner brace in more.

It's happened with 20x30, 20x40, 20x36. And, yes, I've hammered them back in place and in some instances they've come loose again. I've had some wraps where when I'm hammering one back in place, another falls out. I've been resorting to gluing them in but don't think I should have to do that.

Hi Phil,

We haven't had any other reports of this happening... could you provide more information? Is it a particular size that this happens on? Have you tried hammering them back in place?
