The zipties included in this are perfect -- they're used for mounting electric fans to radiators. I'm going to use them in the place of plastic rivets on my car (because the rivets are $6/each which is asinine). Anyone know where I can get something similar locally?
lordco, made by flex a lite and maradyne

but they wont have the springs, u can buy those separately

Thanks for the tip. I decided to see if my local (Langley) Save-On's had it, and they did! It's $4 there, though. My wife has been looking for the bbq sauce that McD's uses, and this is it, or really, really close. She was Googling it, and asked me if I knew where to get the sauce. Fortunately, I remembered this post. I love RS.

Best bet for sure is to go to Fitness depot or any other fitness store for a good selection of kettle bells

Anyone know where to get swim goggle straps for Speedo Sockets? Mine finally snapped after almost 10 years, and I really like the goggles and would prefer to just get the rubber straps replaced. Tried Team Aquatics, and they only carry the full goggle.

I see them at the concession stand at the theaters all the time.

Could also try the bigger dollar stores.

Where can one find ammo cans for a decent price? Princess Auto has lots but they want $25 each for the larger ones... hoping for something cheaper.



Figure a military surplus store might, but wonder if anyone knows of one that would DEFINITELY have them for cheaper, before I go running all over town

Have you tried the Candy Aisle on W4th near Arbutus?
Call them first to save you a trip.
OR the Sweet Factory in Metrotown?
