    Default Escape Boards

    I was asked to post a picture of the escape boards I use. The design is typical but I bought the cones from a local fellow here and in my opinion are much better than the typical staple on type. These are molded so that the plastic is thicker and it is made in a way that the cones are pushed into the board, not stapled. here is a picture of the escape board.

    well, in second thought I dont have a picture of my escape boards. So Ill get one asap but here is a link to the fellows who made them up for me,

    I tried those and if you don't glue them they fall out as the wood shrinks.

    if the wood shrinks, the cones should hold tighter. I suspect you cut the holes to large.

    I have not had a single one fall out of mine, and Im not the gentlest with working the boards
