#12Ab Ski Tap

  • #12AB SKI TAP
0.06 LBS

Product Description

  • Some skis are made with a metal sheet inside, or have a hard insert in the core so that you need to tap screw holes before mounting bindings. 
  • Use the #12 AB tap to thread these binding holes on skis with a hidden top metal sheet (common on GS race skis) or whenever recommended by the ski manufacturer. 
  • Using tap handles allows a good grip on the tap and help insure that you thread it in straight.

  1. Tap it I did 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Dec 2014

    Used it to mount 22Designs Vice bindings. Threads matched right up for a solid mount. A little pricey for a tap but ehh whatever. It's a must for metal top sheets.

  2. You are going to need on at some point 5 Star Review

    No more "spinner" screws. Great product.

  3. Thread does not match binding screws 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Aug 2014

    This tap is good quality, but its threads per inch are not the same as my ( standard nordic ) binding screws.

  4. Works as intended, a bit pricey 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Apr 2014

    Works as intended and recommended when mounting on metal topsheets. Seems overkill just to tap the thin metal top sheet. if they made a self-tapping screw I'd just reuse it to cut the threads before mounting the bindings with the proper screws. Mounted 22 Design Vice telemark bindings with this tap.

    I didn't use a tap handle, just a small crescent wrench readily available in my toolbox while carefully holding the tap vertical. A drill or tap guide/block like the Big Gator Tools would make it even easier.

  5. Tap works as advertised 5 Star Review

    To pierce/tap/avoid topsheet pullup of metal insert and topsheet skis

  6. Works great 5 Star Review

    It does just what it's suppose to. I used it to mount up a pair of axl tele bindings and it has the proper threading.

  7. Works great!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Jun 2013

    I used the tap for mounting an alpine-binding! It made a sharp, clear cut which gave the screw the best grip in the first two tuns. This lowers the risk of delaminating the ski. Nice tool!!

    Quality tap, worked great.

  9. a must have for mounting bindings 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Apr 2013

    The is a must have if you mount bindings on skis with metal. I use it with all the bindings I mount. The AB is for alpine. Tele bindings usually use a different tap.
