It's a tight fit with the Dura Pros... I'm having problems getting the bolt through the spacer on the spindle.... don't want to wail on the bolt to drive it through...

Make sure sled is on the ground so weight of sled helps.. Lift up on inside of ski while pushing bolt thru.Two people makes it easier

Get one end started with the bolt through then use a bar clamp like you can find at home depot or Harbor Freight to align the other side.

I just put the weight of the sled on the ski and it was enough to get the bolt through using a light tap with a rubber mallet, this is with the stock skis though.

Just installed Durapros in a cold garage and tried putting all weight on inside of ski and clamps with no luck. Poured boiling water on it to soften rubber and it installed easily.
