BAMBOO FAQS:

Thanks to its unique composition, bamboo is naturally designed for strength...

  • Unlike wood, bamboo has no rays or knots, allowing it to withstand more stress throughout the length of each stalk.
  • Bamboo’s sectional anatomy, both as a cane and on a microscopic fiber level, enhances its structural integrity.
  • The high silica content in bamboo fibers means the material cannot be digested by termites.
  • Bamboo contains different chemical extractives than hardwood, which make it better suited for gluing.

 

In structural engineering tests bamboo has been shown to have...

  • Higher tensile strength than many alloys of steel
  • Higher compressive strength than many mixtures of concrete
  • Higher strength-to-weight ratio than graphite
INSTALLATION:
Some BAM SHIFTS may require BLUE Loctite to align your knob to your liking. Simply add a couple drops to the threads of your Bam Shift, align the knob to your liking, and let sit overnight.
Using blue Loctite will hold the Bam Shift in position and allow for removal with some force if needed at a later time.   When installing your new Bam Shift do not over tighten, doing so may damage the shifter or threads.  

 

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Q: What's my thread size/How do I find out my thread size?

A: There are 3-4 main thread sizes that most cars have.  To find out your thread size simply search on google, make/model followed by shift knob thread size, or contact us and let us know your vehicle model.

 

Q: What if my knob is not threaded?

A: Some cars have clip knobs rather than screw on.  We may need you to measure your shifter rod so we can make the insert wide enough to fit, but we do have an insert that uses set screws to secure the knob in place. 

 

Q: What happens if my Bam Shift breaks?

A: We will replace or fix any broken shift knob with an identical one. We must receive proof that the original is broken or defective before a new one will be sent.

 

Q: I drive a car with an automatic transmission. Can I still install one of your shift knobs?

A: If your stock shifter has any kind of button on it, Installing an aftermarket shift knob usually requires the use of an adapter. We do not offer these adapters. However, there are many different options available online http://www.speeddawg.com/universal-automatic-shifter-adapter/. If your shift knob does not have a button on it, in most cases, our knobs will fit. Feel free to contact us if you need further clarification.

 

Q: How heavy are the Bam Shifts shift knobs?

A: Bam shifts shift knobs range from a weight of 10oz to 14oz depending on the length of the bamboo knob/handle you are purchasing.

 

Q: What are Bam Shifts inserts made of? 

A: We use solid steel inserts that are strong and won't strip or break, unlike the cheap plastic and nylon inserts other companies use. The insert also adds weight and strength to the already strong Bam Shift.
