Hardware for bimini tops.

Recommended Posts

Does anybody have a good online source for the little pins and parts that make-up the bimini top hardware? I'm looking to do some mods on mine like change to tower mount and add some pull pins.

I recently broke one of the screw pins that fasten the front part of the bimini to the tower, replaced it with nickel finished furniture glides - works like a charm, looks better as well

I know Overtons has some bimini parts in their catalog.

West Marine usually has a ton of misc parts in their rigging area.

I was looking into this for myself a while back and discussed it with an inboard repair shop. They basically told me that it could be done (meaning making the bimini an all tower mount), but that it probably wasn't worth it from a cost perspective. I like my bimini just fine, but that is probably the one mod I had the dealer do when I bought the boat that I haven't been completely happy with. I think the biminis mounted exclusively by the tower are much nicer. There are no tie down straps to deal with etc. I can't justify a new bimini, so I'll live with the one I have.
