    Me again,  sorry.  Thanks for the advice so far!

    The end caps are missing from my spreaders. Last season I used gaffer tape as a replacement, but it wore through and the shroud occasionally popped out. You can’t buy just the end caps; you have to buy the whole length adjuster, which means spending 30 quid for 2 bits of plastic!  I wondered if anyone has any experience. of this and could suggest a better home made solution than gaffer tape?

     

    Thanks! On a mission to sort everything out before the weather improves!

    “Self Amalgamating Tape” but you need to cut it off with a sharp knife if you need to remove it. You wind it on like gaffer tape stretching it as you go and it sets like rubber. Excellent!
