Many of you have taken an interest in my MYOG A frame. I’m indebted to Darren for this latest tweak. He discovered that if you remove the snow basket on a Leki trekking pole, you can screw it into the filler nozzle insert. Serendipitously, the threads match exactly. This gives a very solid coupling, doing away with the need to secure the poles with some cord. It makes the frame even more rigid. Not only does it work with a Leki pole (right in the picture), but it also works with Black Diamond poles (left in the picture). Thanks, Darren. Great suggestion.
