    That would be correct. I have gotten several side release buckles from them as samples for free. I believe they allow you up to 15 free samples.

    You would be correct on those as well.

    ITW Nexus are not taking sample orders anymore. Ordered some a while ago and never received them, placed a new order and mailed them after a week or 2 and got a reply stating to check their dealers for purchase of small quantities as they weren't taking sample orders anymore :(

    Still looking for a EU (pref. Dutch) supplier of these!

    GoingGear.com has them in stock (174 currently ).... $0.79 a pop. Not bad, actually.

    Product Link

    Given the cost and what shipping probably is, it probably needs to piggyback on a larger order to make it worthwhile.

    Of course, Free Shipping for orders > $49 and a nice selection of lights might make that a moot point. :-X

    Thanks for the tip. Maybe GoingGear will receive an order, however the import tax always messes up a nice deal (not just the import tax, but the delivering party also charges handling costs for this at a minimum of I think 17.50 euro (approx 25$)). So for now I just keep looking in the EU.

    How many of them were you looking for? I might be placing an order with GoingGear in the next couple of weeks. Unless you are looking for a case or bulk order, I might be able to snag you some. I would just have to calculate the shipping.

    Not that much, something like 20 black and 20 orange.

    Would be nice if you can set something up :)

    40 whistles? Do you have a neighbor that you are really trying to annoy? :laugh:

    Bit more than I expected, but let me see if I can figure out something that would work.
