If you feel like a road trip to Squamish there is a pretty good mix at Climb On. If you know exactly what you want then mail order is likely possible.

I was searching on Google and came across USOutdoor.com but Iíve never heard of them. They have single heads for .95 and Teds for 1.95, but like I said I never heard of them and I donít feel comfortable ordering from companies I donít know. Anyone have any info on them?

If they are no good Iíll go to Mountain tools, I forgot about them thank you. Iíd love to go to Squamish but I canít right now, I wish they had an online catalog.

Not trying to lure sales over here or anything..... but....

Copperheads and their close cousins, rivet hangers are all mostly the same. But, and this is a big one.... there have been a FEW failures of rivet hangers (the swaged loop style) that are commonly available in various sports stores, including the Mountain Shop in Yosemite Valley. I have zero doubt that the YATES stuff is top notch, but I would be wary of other manufacturers (not including FISH of course) producing these goods. Quality control is very much an issue with swaged goods, and there have been failures resulting in some giant falls that I know of.... like 100ft!!! My unbiased opinion is that I'd would be somewhat nervous using anything besides FISH or YATES heads and rivet hangers.

I've always made my own rivet hangers and copperheads. Haven't blown one out yet. Although I was a little nervous on the machine head pitch.

Unaweep has some of the best climbing around here in my opinion; Iím more into multipitch and not incredibly fond of sandstone though. Iím looking at the Black as soon as my shoulder heels. What else do you want to know?

Go with FISH heads and wire rivit hangers. I took a 120 foot fall when a rivit hanger was not swaged properly.

Where did I get it? The Yosemite Mountain Shop. Also have had one circle head fail from there. Multiple reports of #1 rivit hanger failures, do they care? Heck no.

When I order my heads, I get them ONLY from FISH. Why? As I'm now a little sensitive about it, FISH now tests the first one of each of my batches for breaking strength. This assures that there hasn't been wear on the swaging gear that makes it not crimp correctly.

Thanks for the peace of mind, Russ!

Oh yeah...order a dubloon for the rivits that are broken or pounded in to deep. This way you don't have to use micro-scary wire hangers. These are washers with a bent and ground down inside edge. With a breaking strength of 1000+ pounds instead of the 250 pounds of a thin wire hanger.

-Kate.
