Climbing Skin Adapters?

I have an older pair of black diamond Ascension skins. They have the metal clip that you fold over the tail of your ski and then a green piece of elastic with a metal loop on the top that you stretch over the tip. The problem is that I bought a pair of Salomon Pocket Rockets and the metal loop now does not fit over the tip of the skis. Last season I just duck-taped the skins on. I was wondering if Black Diamond made a loop for fat skis that I could buy and put on my skins, or if there is anything else out there or if I just need to buy a new pair. Thanks

Check out the freeride tip kit from Back Country Access. Pretty sweet set up and very easy to use with gloves still on. Works great on fatties. Better yet, get a whole new tip & tail set up for $5 more.

Check it:

Buy the blue rattail kit made by black diamond. It is superior to G3 in my opinion because I can still do the stupid human trick and put my skins on without taking off my skis. It is adjustable to 6 different lengths and easy install in the place of the clipfix.
