Default Hotelier safety sleeves

Any one know if there is a US source for the Wefkind (sp?) safety
sleaves.

Are they even being produced anymore?

I need 5 of them if anyone has some stashed somewhere.

Thanks

Al

Wedekind sleeves are much, much better than the alternatives (pins or
Uerling sleeves).

I happened to be part of the DG Yahoo group and someone offered 5 sets
for sale for a DG-200 (which will most likely work for the DG-10x).
Email me and I will share his address.

I bought my Wedekind sleeves from McLean Aviation (UK LS DG Dealer).
Nice folks.
However their Wedekind information didn't cover the DG airbrake
installation sleeves that they sold me.

Also see http://geocities.com/jhderosa/aviation/wedekind which shows
how I installed the sleeves.

I've just remembered that Wedekinds come in (three?) different types,
depending on the type of Hotelier. Make sure you get the right kind.

You might find that only one type are now available.

About 4 years ago I needed a set for a Std Cirrus.
I bought 4 from MacLean Aviation but returned them
because they did not look exactly the same as the pictures
in the Tech Note. I got one from Schempp-Hirth and
found it was exactly the same as the DG ones from Bob
MacLean I had returned. I tried to buy back the ones
I had returned but Bob had sold them and had no more.
I could not find another source worldwide. Eventually
Herr Wedikind made another batch which were the same
again but which turned out to fit the Cirrus OK.
I think that some of these ended up with Southern Sailpanes
and some with MacLean Aviation.

I happened out of interest to look at the McLean site using the link below.
BUT the site seems to be hi-jacked by another totally non gliding web
page?

Wonder if anyone else has the same problem?

Should have checked this before the previous message.
The UK site does not have a hyphen in the web address.

http://www.mcleanaviation.co.uk/ works and is correct.
