Well, not quite. To replace the LGB ties requires that you remove their rail joiner and this will typically destroy the old ones in the process.

So now you also have the work and expense of replacing these with similar or a more expensive alternative. And, the replacement does not lock to the end tie like the original.

I ordered 100 SJ clamps as soon as I heard they were going out of business.


Still the best clamps around in my opinion.

Trying to make me feel bad?

Actually the vertical screws sound good. You really have to get into your zen patience to attach some of these clamps.

There's a trick to putting the SJ's on, once you have been shown it, it's easy. I have a lot of issues with the 4 screws on a flat plate one, trying to equalized the pressure and alignment.
