Screw in Footman Connector
During the 1990's, Louet delivered wheels that had a screw attaching the footman to the main wheel. We found that some times, usually when attempting to ply, the screw would "unscrew", causing the footman to fall off the wheel. We have since switched to a bolt attachment system.
Footman Bot Assembly
You need to order a "FOOTMAN BOLT ASSEMBLY" to replace the screw connection with a bolt connection. See the table below for various models of footman bolt assembly.
See the attached pdf file for installation instructions.
To install the bolt connector, you will need to drill a 1/4" (6mm) hole through the main wheel, where the screw hole exists, and then install the bolt assembly. This solution is for S10, S15 and S51 wheels.
This solution works for all of the S70 series wheels as well, but since the wheel hub is thicker, you need to counter sink the hole to allow the bolt to fit. (S70, S71, S75, S76, S77)
The footman bolt assembly has changed since 2016. The footman bolt assembly for S17's, S10 Concept and Victoria wheels all use a slight variation of the older version of footman bolt assembly. See this related article
