Availability Update: February 29th, 2020 – AIR-LOCK TEAM

Well, we were almost at the finish line.  It was around this time last year that the Great Air-Lock Famine started, and we were just days away from having our big shipment arrive to get everyone taken care of.  We had previously received a small shipment to get things going, but that was a small air shipment with just enough for a few preseason orders.
 
The container ship that hauled our big shipment that was going to end this Air-Lock scarcity is currently being quarantined due to the Coronavirus situation.  What we were told is that there is no ETA, no updates, and they have no further info for us.  We anticipate they will indeed be released to us (and be safe) at some point, but we have no further information, and it doesn’t sound like we’ll be getting any.
 
We currently have the 1″ size Air-Locks available, but the more popular 1/2″ and 3/4″ sizes are out of stock.  We are still taking orders for them that we will fulfill when the shipment arrives.
 
We sincerely apologize.  We were as excited as everyone to finally have this situation behind us.

 

Air-Lock Biodegradable Strike Indicators.

NEW DESIGN of The Air-Lock Biodegradable Strike Indicators:

The new biodegradable foam has more benefits beyond keeping our waterways cleaner. 

The new design out-performs the original plastic design in every way.

  • 30% Lighter:  Easier, more efficient casting and delivery.
  • Suspends 25% more weight on the water.
  • Stealth:  Neutral-colored post is less visible to fish, and the lighter overall weight lands softer on the water.
  • Sensitivity:  Better strike detection.
  • Durability:  No more leaks, dents, holes, cracks or pops!
  • Easier to see leader slot when attaching.
  • Hurts 38.6% less when you hit yourself in the back of the head on a forward cast…

Air-Lock Biodegradable Strike Indicators

Available in 1/2”, 3/4”, and 1” sizes in both resealable 3-packs.

Air-Lock Strike Indicators are Biodegradable:

We believe in keeping our waterways as clean as possible.

We redesigned our popular strike indicators with biodegradable foam so those indicators that end up floating away for any reason will break down over time.

  •  Not to be confused with “water soluble:”  Air-Lock Biodegradable Strike Indicators will not dissolve or be compromised in any way during normal use.
  • Biodegrading happens when the material is left in the elements: mud, water, mulch, compost, etc. over a long period of time.

Rigging the Air-Lock Biodegradable Strike Indicator.

RIGGING The Air-Lock Biodegradable Strike Indicator:

One thing that has not changed:  The most innovative locking mechanism in the world for attaching to your leader. 

  • Standard Rigging: 
    • Unscrew the locking nut;
    • Lay the butt section of your leader in the slot;
    • Replace the locking nut and tighten down;
    • Note:  For smaller diameter leaders, you can remove the rubber washer for a tighter fit.  This will not result in a damaged leader.
  • 90 Degree Rigging:
    • Remove the locking nut;
    • Thread your leader through the locking nut and slide up to the butt section;
    • Place leader butt section in the slot on top of the indicator;
    • Tighten locking nut down on the post as shown with leader sticking out one side, then out the top.
