Does anyone know where to get the jump cups that don't need pins?? I was told they kind of look like a figure 8 and grip the post instead of putting a pin through it-- I just bought a bunch of stuff to make some jumps, and thought these might work really well. Your experience with them??? TIA!!!!

Like these?? They're almost as old as I am :D I've had them forever (they are that durable) and everyone always wants to know where I got them.

I laid one down to show the angles

I love them. So easy to set and they drop and can't hurt a rider.

Those are interesting. Have you ever just had one slid down and not hold on? Where can I find those?

Yes, those are the jump cups that Pink is looking for. Any idea where they can be found?

My dad has a jig for them and makes them for me out of rebar. They are really easy and cheap to make. Plus to keep them from sliding down on the jump, we just nail steeples in the standard down one side in 3" increments (sp?) and rest the cups on those. I loff them and they are much easier and cheaper to make and keep up with compared to the pin kind. If you have someone who can weld them, I can get you the measurements.

Measurements would be fantastic!!!! I really like the staple idea too, as the biggest complaint people seem to have about them is that they tend to want to slip down.

Trying looking for the key hole system we have started to use them and love them.
