Fittings

KITE STUDIO has stock fittings as well as our own custom fittings for single & multi-line kites.

When trying to decide what fitting you need, first ask yourself, "Am I trying to connect a spar to another spar, or am I trying to connect the kite's fabric to a spar?"  Then proceed in the correct direction by following the links...

Keep in mind that we make many "one of a kind" fittings for customers with special needs.  If you don't see it listed, and you have an idea about what you need the fitting to do, give us a call.  We'll try to help.
