    Cool Spark Storage Area Retainer Clip Fix

    Iíll admit it, I have a LONG history or over-torque. In removing my Sea Doo Spark hull many times for various mods I ended up torquing down the front storage area too much and stripping out the plastic retainer clips. I am not sure of their part number and they seem like they would be a great thing to 3D print, but last night I worked up a good temporary fix that I wanted to share. Basically you slide out the plastic retaining clip from underneath by pushing it forward (pay attention to the fact that it is keyed with a bump that will face towards the nose of the hull when putting it back in). Next, insert two zip ties from the bottom of the clip and cut them off with about 2-3 inches to spare after the go through the clip from the bottom up. You then re-insert the clip (it will be a tight fit) with the cut ends of the zip ties facing up towards the hull. This gives the clip new plastic inside for the screw to bite into and seems to work well. If your clip is barely stripped then a single tie might work as well. Just wanted to share my quick fix! Hope nobody ever has to use it, LOL!
