Finsout Removal Tool for FCS II & Future Fins
The Finsout Removal Tool for FCS II & Future Fins gives you safety and easy removal of your surfboard fins. The reason you need this is that fins can get stuck, from sand and salt build up, or from an odd bump. Not only can these fins be hard to move, if you apply too much of the wrong force you can wreck your fin box, popping it out. Or you can push the back of your fin into your board causing a ding. The Finsout is a simple yet sophisticated device that helps you insert and remove your fins. It’s shaped and works in a similar way to a pair of tongs. There’s two side pieces with a padded space in the middle. These two side pieces are connected to a solid handle at the back to safely and easily leverage out your fins.
How It Works
To insert a fin you place your fin partway in the fin box. You then slide the Finsout Removal Tool over the fin. Then exert pressure on the part of the fin that is not in your box. With Futures this means inserting the fin into the rear of the box. Then use Finsout to leverage down the front of the fin into the box. With FCS II you place the front of the fin in the box. Then use Finsout to leverage down the rear of the fin into the box. Removing the fins is where Finsout is most valuable. With FCS II, if you don’t approach the fin release just right you can damage your board, even popping out the entire fin box.
With FCS II you approach the fin from the rear and first leverage up the rear of the fin out of the box then the front of the fin. Using Futures you unscrew the front of the fin, slide Finsout over the front of the fin and leverage up. Then remove the whole fin from the box. While it’s taken a lot of words to describe the process, it’s quick, easy and foolproof. It provides a better, safer way to get your fins in and out of your board than using your hands.
