Yep, this is common. Mine's completely gone. I believe you can get replacements from Ultimate, though I think some on here have done modifications using rubberized truck bed liner, etc....David?

Yes. Funny thing is my original tribar rubber strips, while worn down, are still firmly attached. The rubber strips on my newer AX48 have slid off after 1 month.

 

I actually get rubberized shelf liner at Home Depot. I trim it to exact size, then superglue it to the tribar. Works great and doesn't move.

 

I am using the rubberized bed liner "paint" on my new rotating stand. Jury is still out on that.

If the bed liner paint doesn't work out -- try the tool grip paint.

Yeah, finally one of my four arms ripped halfway, after being in storage for a long time (the rip wasn't there the last time I unfolded it, which was a year ago before this past week when I finally started getting back to keyboards again). I had thought of superglue but it's good to see others here are experimenting with solutions.

A low tech solution is to use self-adhesive felt furniture glides. They're cheap and easy to replace.

 

Not sure if they'll work as well on some of the newer ultralight boards, but for my Motif and Kurz they're great.

Great. Glad to see I'm not the only one. -And great to hear all those creative solutions..

 

Because this is annoying me, I'm actually using this issue as a small school project, "optimizing an existing product" (studying industrial designs), and I had to make sure I was not the only one experiencing this. So now we know that, and please, if you have any more good ideas, I would be glad to hear about it.

 

I was thinking about drilling 5-7 small holes i the tri-bar, and mounting silicone-rubber bumpers in them..

How does that sound to you?

 

Thanx so mutch so far:)

Are you going to use metal screws to hold the bumpers in place? If so, the only problem I see with doing this is what happens if the silicone bumper wears out/breaks/falls off? Then you'll have a metal fastener there that may scratch the bottom of the keyboard.
