RPM 1/4" Snap-Tite Body Savers (Black) (5)
[RPM80332]

RPM 1/4" Snap-Tite Body Savers (Black) (5)
Renner22 - Rating: 1 of 5 Stars! Verified Owner Sunday, March 30, 2014
Like everyone says, the theory behind the product is excellent, but the execution is horrible. 1. Nearly impossible to fit on the body. My JConcepts SCT body is a pretty standard model, and when I drilled out the hole to fit the washers, i found that you have to go quite a bit bigger before anyone can snap the two washers together (to allow the inner part to flex enough so it would reach the mating part). I am a 6'2" 240lb man with strong hands, and it was all I could do to snap them together. Once together, the don't want to stay together. Because body post positions on a SCT are often in corners or curved sections, anytime there is movement, the two sides are pried apart. I ended up CA gluing them, but suspect they'll pop off the first bad wreck I get in. Disappointing cause i can't go back since the holes are now so much bigger, and even more disappointing cause I put these on a brand new body I had just meticulously painted with a four color masked scheme (ie, a lot of work). 2. Once on, the body post clips are nearly impossible to put on. Due to the increased thickness of the bodysavers, the holes on the body posts are too low. I had to Dremel down the post flange a bit to get the clips on (which incidentally means you will need new posts when you go back to NO bodysavers on future bodies, which I certainly will).
