Faulty calf cuffs.
« on: April 27, 2011, 07:10:28 PM »
Ok so i ordered 2 sets of calf cuffs for mine and my brothers stilts, ordered them at the exact same time and only 1 set has turned up so far....  and to make things worse the set that has turned up has 2 buckles on each leg instead of 1 buckle 1 strap  :Cmad:  Has any1 else had this happen and what am i supposed to do, just ask for a replacement and send them back?

Heres an idea  :Cbiggrin:

Call Pro-jump and ask them what went wrong they can then send you the remaining bits

If you hurry and call them first thing tomorrow you might get them just after the holidays or even on saturday if the courier can do it

Hi, i'v got the same problem with a set of EXO pro's i purchased last week, i'v put the bars on to start with and went to put the calf cuffs away safe and noticed the one set is the same as yours, has buckels both sides and no strap, i'v sent an email but not had a response as yet, so i'll phone on Tuesday and see what they say. :Cnah:

Hi guys

Please could you send an email to admin@projump.co.uk with pics so I can get this sorted, together with your order numbers.

The exo pros come pre packaged but if you ordered the calf cuffs separately there seems to be an error on our part so please accept my apologies.

Kindest Regards

Hello, I've just decided to try jumping stilts out so bought myself a pair of slightly used ones with a kneebar, unfortunatly my legs are a bit too thin and no matter how i adjust the kneebar velcro/height i don't seem to get a proper fitting, would you recommend for me to switch to calf cuffs and what are the quarantees that they will fit? :) i can walk just fine as they are, but running or jumping is a real problem for me at the moment. and yes i've looked through forum but it's mostly about using webbing or adjusting the height of kneebars.

ps: i decided to post it in this topic instead of making a new one, because i didn't want to spam your forum much.

LeoRus, do you wear any sort of knee pads?

If not, get some. They make knee bars far more comfortable. Motocross, knee/shin guards are the preferred type.

i've tried with some roller blade ones, wondering if the width of kneepads will be enough to keep me balanced. Kneepads seem to stop my leg from weebling much forward and back, but it's still easy to slide to the side of a kneebar. I've already been trying to develop a temporary solution with ducktape and some stuff similar to insulation foam. Ty for answer, didn't excpect one at this time :)

I felt the same as you when I first started out. Knee/shin pads helped as did webbing/straps but cuffs were the best solution for me. I felt much more confident on them after that. They don't work for everybody but they might be worth looking at.

What stilts do you have? The cuffs won't stay secure in the brackets if you have powerisers, 7's or some pretty old projumps.

I bought the Pro-Jumps m70's the ones with orange color on them. Ordered myself a pair knee/shin pads, will see how it feels once i receive them, probably will try webbing tomorrow. just a bit too late now to dig into the shed to find the materials needed. :) plus if knee/shin pads sort out the issue, there's a big chance i'll buy myself a pair of new jumping stilts once i get paid or by the end of June.
