    Kevin250 Actually have made a few videos regarding Q-loq's and a few other one's .( Bit out of date)
    However it might be good to redo them as have worked out better quicker way of making them.

    Yeah, I bet you are ;)......the mere mention of PVC and DIY in the same sentence has got our Smurf all-exited :hehehe:
    I'm sorry to burst your bubble of excitement Smurfy :eek:.... but Kev's reference to DIY is about making things from PVC Pipe :rofl:.

    Don't worry Smurf....your secret is safe enough on here :zipit:...;)...:whistle:.

    iv been looking for the same thickness of pipe as the aussie stuff for months, iv tried all the diy branches diffrent electrical gas and plumbing suppliers and iv looked on line, If the only way to get it is ship it from Austrailer cant see it being cost affective, i even bought a heat gun, i got that first because i thought getting the pipe would be easy,

    its costing a small fortune to have it shipped over andy,(well its gonna cost me a lot of favours!-which i don't mind)true you just can't get the same quality of pipe over here,i'll pop a link up later for those springs for the q-lock
