Roshi - thanks - a good Plan B. Yesterday I finally received a reply from Belt Mountain. Maybe they are slammed.
Anyway, they recommend I send in my order manually, with a check, so I'll do that. There is a form at their site that can be printed out for orders.
Never paid much attention to base pin design before, but now that I have, Belt Mountain seems to have very good engineering ideas relative to keeping the pins in place more securely than anyone else's.
Anyway, I'll report back when I receive it.
