    Help finding a rivet cable stop

    I am trying to find a source to get a couple of these. None of the local shops I checked could help, NOVA is the only US based supplier I found online but between a $5 small order fee and $15 standard shipping it comes to $25 to get 2 of these shipped. I emailed them to see if something is wrong with the shipping calculator. In the meantime I have been having difficulty finding these.

    Thanks

    Order a crap load of them, then become everyone else's supplier w/o the extra price gouging.

    It is also worth putting out a wanted add on Craigslist for damaged frames and obtaining miscellaneous parts that way.

    They aren't Performance.com, Nova is there to supply builders....it's not "price-gouging"

    The $25 shipping is price gouging. They'll ship them via USPS for about $2.

    Sorry, you're right. $15 is still ridiculous, though.

    Nova is a Wholesale business they don't take their shipments to the post office and stand in line.
    If you send a check and a pre paid SASE to send it back in, maybe they wont have to use UPS,
    which has a minimum charge for sender pickups.
    USPS smallest flat rate box is $4.95, but a padded envelope will mail for a couple bucks.

    but they have to be prepaid so when the mail is delivered, the package goes back to the PO with the carrier.

    guess FTW(#3) says he got a bunch .. then the shipping minimum is a small %..
    PM him and ask..

    Nova left a small part out of one of my orders. They shipped it UPS.

    NOVA charged $2 for shipping after I contacted them, apparently their web site thinks everything weighs too much. They did charge a $5 small order fee though. But they were the only source for these I could find.
