Looking for a U.S. supplier of this kite part. Any ideas? For a Benson Inner Space to be specific.

It's quite difficult to find a source of the spreader-side Jaco fittings. Sad

Not to the sail sbrown but to the lower spreader type connectors. I am trying Kite Shoppe but they supplied me with APA types on a recent repair needing JACOS? Have tried to place the order as they seem to have it in stock? but looking for a possible second supplier here in the U.S. or in Canada.

I ordered a bunch of R-Sky stand-off connectors because I seem to break them once in a while. The shipping was as much as the order so I ordered a set of R-Sky wind screens too to make it worth it. I decided I don't really care about the shipping cost because there are so few places to find these parts.

If I were you, I might contact Tim Benson and see if he'll sell you some connectors. It depends on how bad you want 'em. (And maybe he might know of someone in the US who sells them.)

Steve had a good supply of them a year or so ago.  Never had a problem buying from him.  If he doesn't have any, Steve might be able to point you in the right direction.

I am sure Tim would have no problems gettting you the parts. He is really easy to deal with and is a great guy! You might have to wait a while to recieve them though.
