    I purchased a set of finclips after back surgury issues made it very difficult to put my fins on. they are amazingly easy to install and I did not notice any difference while swimming with them vs the standard straps that came with my mares fins. Our scuba group is getting older 60's to 80's. I would like to get a number to get replacement screws as one fell out during my 2 weeks in Bonaire.

    @Kharon I realize this is a old post from you, but I stumbled across the thread when it popped up again.

    Is the problem that: the tail/bottom of the of the fin pocket too long or too short?

    I would guess too short, but I don't know for sure. The company just told me that they wouldn't work because I had "technical" fins. Don't think the Aeris Excell is a technical fin.

    Too long and a judicious use of a utility knife would do the trick ...

    Too short might be at least partially dependent on how much YOUR boot extends past the edge (i.e. - varies on foot proportions & size, fin pocket proportions and "size", and boot thickness). Did you measure your actual overhang and give it to them?

    As noted above, very similar to my circumstances and results.

    I love these things for their contribution to my continued diving.

    My set came with three spare screws.

    PM me with a mailing address and I'll send you one.
