Rated 4 out of 5 by Milo from nice that tail kit includes inexpensive replaceable parts The black diamond skins I have use this tail kit and on a recent ski trip, I noticed that cracks were appearing next to one of the notches in the plastic tail. At a glance, it looked like I would need to rivet a new tail kit to the skins. A little research revealed that the plastic tails and metal clips are readily available and quickly swapped out. I bought several so as always to have a spare in my pack. I have had the metal clips fall out and now have heard stories from others of the plastic tails cracking. Everyone with these skins should have this replacement kit, or better yet, they should come with at least one extra plastic tail and metal clip

Rated 5 out of 5 by kmtreks from does the trick! Unfortunately even though my skins are well fitted, I found that one of these metal clip brackets fell off somewhere in the snow. So I had to reorder a clip, and now I have a backup.
