I have an adjustable "sleeve" with telescoping inner sleeve. It locks in p
lace with a beefy plastic clip that has pins that push down into holes into
Picture a plastic 3/4 circle about 1.5" in diameter (like a C with the open
ing downwards). The pins stick down inside the C and insert from the outer
to inner sleeve to lock it in place. The shape of the C allows it to push
up and down on the outer sleeve for easy adjustment.
Anyways, the top of the C has fatigued from too many adjustments, and crack
ed. So I am thinking about adding another "layer" of plastic, cutting a pi
ece of PVC pipe or something to fit snugly over the smaller clip, and gluin
g it in place. In other words, a slightly bigger C fitted over the smaller
So, (finally) here is my question. The smaller C is a hard black plastic,
I can't determine exactly what type it is. The larger C would need to be s
omething already in the right shape, like a 1" length of 1 3/4" plastic pip
I want the glue the outer ring onto the inner ring. Without knowing the ex
act plastics, is there a prep/glue/product that will A) be strong and perma
nent, B) work generically on varying plastics, C) allow for the C to flex a
nd push down on the sleeve, and D) be waterproof (the sleeve is actually a
windsurfing boom arm).
Thanks for any assistance!
