Block Shiv Repair

Anybody ever replace the plastic shivs in riveted together blocks?

Seems a waste to toss perfectly good block cheek plates and becketts just because of UV damage to the nylon shivs...or what ever they are made of.

Doubt I could replicate the rivet but could easily grind one end off and knock it out then use a SS bolt....would not be as flush and user friendly to the deck but this is my Vang tackle so it doesn't see the deck anyway.

I think the usual way to get your shiv repaired involves giving a carton of smokes to the big guy with a tattoo on his face....

yes, have done it on both of my deck blocks to avoid much more work, and did just as you describe basically.

Well, I guess that would depend on their $ize and make. How much is ones time worth?
Of course, in my case I could make new rivets or modify them to take an oval head screw.

Some gear mfg's will sell new shiv's for their gear.

I was making the joke above thinking that "shiv" was just some sort of spellchecker gone wrong accident, but maybe it is worth seriously pointing out that it is "sheave".

I though a 'shiv' was a slang term for a knife?
