FCS FUTURE GRUB SCREW TIPS

Do you use FCS Systems or Futures and often struggle with the grub screws ? Here are a few tips on how to preserve those little stainless steel screws that hold your favourite set of fins in .

  1. This may sound obvious but make sure the drilled holes are clean and free from debris, that way the grub screw will move freely through the thread. 
  2. Use a new key , they wear out quickly , its worth investing in a hardened commercial quality Allen or Hex key ( 3/16th is the size for both Futures and FCS ). Or buy one of those fancy FCS tools...
  3. Make sure you place the allen key firmly into the grub screw , screw slowly , if you hear noises that suggested its grinding into  the plastic box , stop and remove the grub screw and clean the hole , something is in the way . It could be a little bit of fiber glass debris if its a brand new surfboard . Even a tiny sanded bit of the plastic from the box , that is  trapped in the thread (hole), or even sand or grit if the board has already been used .
