QUADWAYS Home New Stuff Croquet Stuff Pricelist FAQ www.TerminatorMallets.co.nz
Did you know about their three main advantages..
Use a cordless drill and 20mm (3/4") bit, and a template board with 6 holes . (See in FAQ below)
With the Template board (with 6 holes) lined up with your strings....
Drill your series of 6 holes
Use the Dibber to make your hoop holes. (Old wooden maul for hammer and 2 team members for vertical side~side & forward~back)
Drop the Quadway with the clamp into the holes..
Pop the Quadway Sabot over the hoop .and firm with a rubber mallet or steel club hammer(2 team members for vertical side~side & forward~back)
One minute. That's all you need to change from competition sub 3 11/16" all the way out to 3 3/4"
Wide to narrow, and two steps in between.
Easy care.. Forget about :
sand-blasting and powder coating every 2 years... (or even painting)
It doesn't take long for them to pay for themselves
Stainless steel legs and crowns ..no rusting (maybe a wash every now and then)
Medium tensile square carrots (bright zinc plated) and top sealed
What you need to get going with Quadways ....
This makes the precision holes in the ground for the hoops.. Always the same hole spacing.. These are solid M.Tensile steel.. (not cast iron) Good for a lifetime (yours and mine).
You need only one... Used by your lawns team
NO Dibber~~ NO Warranty
Plywood Lawn Protector... see below in FAQ
1 set , or 2, or 3,...
...... All the Quadway hoops are precision made interchangeable, SO... They all fit perfectly into the Dibber holes.
The Quadway stainless steel crowns are deeper in cross
section so they have a higher resistance to bending (than cast iron or
welded mild steel hoops)
Important... when you are "firming" the hoops... hit the crown in the middle... Reason..hitting on the screws/legs WILL eventually damage the corners. Not covered by warranty.
Use a Sabot and add decades to your Quadways
Sabot (say it like saboteur )
The Sabot slides over the top of the hoop
Hidden in the top is 55mm of solid steel. (2") That upper protects the hoop from being munted...
The steel sides front & back take all the stress off the adjustable top corners.
Some clubs use the Sabot INSTEAD of a mallet for firming hoops into the ground. The latest version has an industrial grade padding inside the top. (Helps to save the powder-coating)
Maybe one per 4 lawns . Used by your lawns team
Not a new idea but refined for speedy use
Tool-less adjustment, and strength.
Maybe one per 4 lawns. Used by your lawns team.
The "Spacer" is pre-set to 93mm and is marked with 3 dots..
To adjust the spacer:-
Setting hint:- Put the clamp right down to the Carrots... for maximum leverage.
Uses the principles of a carpenters hammer for pulling out nails..leverage.
Not much bigger than a carpenters hammer so you can have one on each trolley..
Your ladies will love them.
Maybe one for each trolley. Used by your players to undress their lawn."
Lawn saving hint:- Train your players to "Stamp" on the hoop holes after the hoop comes out.. You will be amazed how long the holes remain good.
Funding Most clubs don't have a pile of cash hanging around SO.. funding is the usual option. Just drop me a line and I'll do a quote for you.
Freight.. Quadway hoops are heavy (surprise !!!) but I get good rates from my couriers in NZ AND very good rates to Australia.
The Dibber is 5 kg. !!! and is costly to send on its own.
A Quadway set is 17kg's
Basic order might be 1 Dibber and 1 set of Quadways SO.. the Dibber travels (almost) free.
Aussie Agent is Lindsay David in Brisbane.. e. sales@StarMallets.Com ph. +61 403 489 967
There is no import duty on NZ made products... Thank you CER .. (Closer Economic Relationship)
I provide the "NZ Made" certificate
You might get pinged for Tax on imports greater than $AU 1,000 and that is for you to pay. (Lindsay will factor that for you)
You can do international direct credit payment for larger orders straight from your internet banking. Fees are sometimes charged at both ends...So if you choose to do D.C. then please add $15 to cover the cost at my end.
Credit Card Visa/M'card convenience. There is a 2% charge. BUT/AND that is often cheaper than other options... And in 19 years I've had no issues.

|How long will the Quadways last?
If they are set in the lawns as recommended then you will have no issues in their normal lifetime of say 30~40 years. Hoop life will be mainly affected by excessive stresses (just like your old hoops in the shed).
The issues arise when
hoops are set by well meaning members who are not aware of the potential risks.
I will always be able to provide replacement crowns and legs however it would be
unreasonable to expect a freebie when damage has been caused by excessive force.
|Do I need a Dibber ...Yes
...Essential ... No Dibber...No Warranty
For normal club use:-
| Sabot Do I need one? ... probably
one for each lawn. (say it the same as saboteur..... someone who
threw the wooden shoe into the machine) ..
The Quadways are precision made and they are strong BUT !!! What might not be clear are the potential issues..
Setting lawns for competition play.
|Why make/use a plywood Lawn Protector when
making the dibber holes?
When you lever the Dibber out with a crowbar, you will have something to lever off. " Give me a fulcrum..and a lever long enough.. and I can move the World". where have I heard that before ?
Dibber spikes get massive friction in the ground.. When you lift without the Plywood Lawn Protector you will rip out the lawn
Can we swing the hoops ?
Make the template board. Get a piece of timber 900mm x 100mm x 25mm (3' x 4" x 1")
