If anyone needs some Kong Frogs...
« on: June 17, 2016, 11:24:56 AM »
I just placed an order for some Kong Frog clips with a 40 MOQ so if anyone would like to purchase some I'd be more than willing to give a discount. I also have some samples coming in for their snap shackles, but they're all stainless steal finished. If I could reach out to a powdercoater to get a quote on getting them all finished in black or tan, would anyone be interested in a group purchase/finish? The difference with these, is that they are rated for climbing, rather than what you find on the net with no load bearing numbers for other shackles.

What color(s) powdercoat are you thinking?

I'm thinking black is easiest, pending the shackles are big enough for my intended use (quick release for belt attachment for dog leash). Milspecmonkey is the only place that I can find with a decent price for shackles rated at 1000lbs, but they're out of stock with no projected eta as they are redesigning them. Otherwise, paying for a black rated shackle you're looking at +$35 /ea. This option, pending coating costs, can easily beat that.

We used to use those when I was a diver, but we had to use brass ones. They were always a huge pain to find in brass.

I might add that these are the frogs. They only come in black.
