STOCK HOLDS - ship quickly

For quck turnaround, order from our in-stock section. Stock holds are already made so the colors are fixed and quantities are limited. More info on the in-stock page.

PRODUCTION HOLDS - Made to order

When you order non-stock sets, the holds are made especially for you. This means you can pick the colors of each set and get the exact sets you want. These orders are submitted to our factories to be produced when your order is made on our website or over email with Kiel (holds@kiltergrips.com), Jackie (sales@kiltergrips.com), or Griffin (griffin@kiltergrips.com).

Production holds are added to the factory's manufacturing schedule which varies throughout the year based on how many other orders are in. Generally they say 4-6 weeks for production orders, though some can come sooner. Larger orders can take longer to produce and ship, especially during busy production periods. We can request a rush if needed from Aragon and they will acccommodate it if they can. With Composite-X we can get a guaranteed rush for an upcharge. You can always email us for a production time quote with either manufacturer before your order is finalized.

PRODUCTION - How do I know which shapes are made where? 

Setter Closet has several brands of holds, and within those brands are sub-lines. Our most major brands are Kilter/Haptic and Urban Plastix. Both of these companies produce holds at Aragon in the US and Composite-X in Bulgaria. The holds produced at each factory are completely unique, so though some Urban Plastix Tremors are made in the US and some Urban Plastix Tremors are made in Bulgaria, each factory makes different, yet complimentary shapes. This means if you order all the Tremors from Aragon and all the Tremors from Composite-X you will not get a single duplicate hold. They are complimentary shapes, so the holds will work well when set together because they are the same art style and you can get them in matching colors. 

How do you tell? Each product description lists the manufacturer, but the fastest way to tell is to look at the SKU (Stock Keeping Unit) number in each product title. If the SKU has an X in it, the hold is made at Composite-X. If it does not, it is made at Aragon. The color drop-down is also a giveaway as it primarily will show Euro colors or American colors. You cannot order Aragon-produced shapes from Composite-X, and vice versa.

Example 1: SKU is KX095 so this hold is made in Europe at Composite-X.

 

Example 2: SKU is UP128. There is no "X" in the SKU, so the holds are made in the US at Aragon.

Fiberglass SKUs will begin with KWF or UWF and are made at Walltopia in Bulgaria. We can arrange co-shipping with Fiberglass and Composite-X produced holds, just email us to request it.

WEB ORDERS & SHIPPING

Web orders of Aragon (US-produced) holds ship for .01 cent to Continental US addresses. If your order is over $1000 or you are not in the Continental US please contact us for a ship quote and any discounts you may be eligible for. Hardware does not ship free unless it is purchased with the "Yes Hardware" option on your hold sets. If you order additional hardware alongside your hold order, please contact us to make sure you're getting the best price.

Web orders of Composite-X (European-produced) holds will be charged shipping BUT the web prices are pre-discounted 20% so your initial cost is lower. We can provide hardware for European-produced sets, but it will be shipped separately from our US office as we provide standard hardware to fit US t-nuts. If you are making a large order (over 5k) of European holds, contact us for further discounts.

If you are in another country you can order from both of our manufacturers through your distributor, who you can find on this page--Setter Closet International Orders. Distributor pricing varies by country and depends on many factors including shipping, conversion rates, import, and taxes. Distributors often offer their own discount structures, so please contact them for details. If your country does not have a distributor please contact us for help.

PRODUCTION TURN AROUND

Kilter, Haptic, and Urban Plastix are poured in the US at Aragon and in Europe at Composite-X in the best, longest lasting climbing hold materials available. Union, F-Bloc, and Element Earth are poured only at Aragon. Most orders are poured as they are ordered and depending on our manufacturer's schedules, turn-around times can vary from next-day to 60 days. Most color-specific orders ship within 30-45 days, small and non-specific color orders often ship faster.

If you need your holds faster and there is nothing in stock that works for you, we can request rush production. Sometimes our manufacturers are able to accommodate quick production, other times they are not. We can get you a turn-around quote for confirmation before your order is finalized. European-produced sets are available with a Super Express option for an upcharge, which we can quote for you based on the order. 

If you order part hardware/stock and part production, we will usually ship in two shipments so you get what we have available asap and the rest will come when it has been produced.

~

COMBINED SHIPPING

Kilter, Haptic, Union, F-Bloc, Element Earth and Urban Plastix can all ship together from Aragon in the US and Composite-X in Europe. Just let us know and we’ll work with them to get you the best deal we can on shipping for your order.

We are also happy to co-ship from these manufacturers with other brands as long as the orders are ready around the same time and the other brands agree to co-ship.

COLOR REQUESTS

All Kilter, Haptic, F-Bloc, Union, Element Earth and Urban Plastix US shapes are poured at Aragon Elastomers and are available in any color they make holds in. Unless requested, your sets will be sent in a random variety of colors - basically whatever is on the shelf or whatever they are already pouring when they pour your holds. Each set will be a single color, but each set may be different (so all the K101 you get are blue, all the K057 you get are pink, etc...)

All color choices are available free of upcharge!

If your holds will be in the sun we recommend UV protectant, which is available for a 5% surcharge. Darker colors are also more resistant to fading with extended exposure. UV protectant must be added as the holds are made so these sets will have to be produced and cannot be purchased from stock.

Most sets are available with the option to choose standard or extended colors. If any sets you are ordering are not set up this way, or have color questions, please add a note to your order below your shipping address and we will follow up with you before the order is poured to make sure you're getting what you want.

Kilter and UP Europe are poured in any color Dannomond is available in, and all color choices are free of charge. The palette is expanding as Composite-X matches some US colors. If you have questions about Dannomond colors please just email us.

If you set by color we will help you create or match your palette and we will keep your palette on file to help with future orders. If you already have holds from other brands/manufacturers or are ordering other holds at the same time check with us to make sure we and the other brands/manufacturers are all coordinated with your color choices.

See the Kilter Color Options to see stock colors and all available colors and color numbers for the US and Europe. If you don’t see what you need, write us at holds@kiltergrips.com or sales@kiltergrips.com and we’ll see what we can do.

HARDWARE

We are happy to supply hardware (bolts and/or screws) at an additional cost or give you a list of needed bolt sizes (free) for any orders. Most product pages have recommended hardware listed at the bottom if you want to see for yourself. We also have tools and t-nuts available.

Setter Closet Tools and Hardware Collection

BOLTS

All climbing holds bolts are listed in standard (not metric) and assume a t-nut depth of 1/4"-1/2" from wall surface. Bolts come in alloy (black, normal climbing hold bolts) or, if requested, stainless steel (for outdoors/wet environments, slight upcharge).

Bolts are 3/8" x 16 thread.

We have Standard (aka socket head cap screws, which are the most commonly used bolts in climbing holds and take a "big" 5/16" wrench), Flathead/Martini (look like a martini glass when held sideways and take a "small" 7/32" wrench) and Buttonhead (small domed head, good for low profile footholds with the washer close to the hold's surface, take a 7/32" wrench)

Standard 1.5" bolts are fully threaded. Standard 2" and longer will have an unthreaded neck section between the threads and the head. Buttonhead and Martini/Flathead thread lengths/neck sizes will vary, email us if questions.

Most bolt sizes are recommended on each set page. If not or if you have specific questions, please email us and we will help.

Standard Alloy Bolts

Standard Stainless Bolts

Martini/Flathead Bolts

Buttonhead Bolts (Alloy and Stainless)

SCREWS

If you choose the hardware option for jibs or with Treadwall Packs or a Kilter Board, you will receive screws with your order. The screws up to 2" are 8 gague T-20 (torx head) self tapping wood screws. 3.5" and longer will be T-25 torx. These are the same or very similar to screws commonly used in setting and can also be found at hardware stores. 

T-NUTS

We have zinc and stainless pound-in t-nuts and zinc screw-in (3-screw) t-nuts available. These t-nuts work well if you drill your holes with a 7/16" drill bit or paddle bit. 

We also have industrial zinc t-nuts from Magic Lab in Canada. These take 3-screws (not included) and are thicker than the other t-nuts. The barrel is 1/2" long and a 17/32 bit is recommended to drill holes for them, or 9/16" will work.

TOOLS

We have hand wrenches, impact-end 5/16th bits (regular setting hex bit)7/32nds (martini/flathead/buttonhead bolt size), both in a kit, and impact-end T-20 bits available.
