I know this has been discussed before,but I could not find the threads using the search feature! What hardware store posts do you use to replace the ones that come in the post bound albums? I have heard them called Chicago screws but I have been to several stores and have not been able to find them! Does anyone have a picture to share or know the name of them? Thanks in advance!

ETA:Not sure why the subject didn't post so I added it!

Try searching the big hardware stores website for binding post screws. I printed a picture of one and took it to our Ace Hardware, and the salesman knew exactly what I wanted.

They are the same as the posts you already have, but in longer lengths. Take one with you to the store.

I have heard them called "Chicago screws" but when I went in and asked for Chicago screws nobody knew what I was talking about. Better to bring in a sample.

Michaels has some longer ones now. I've seen them hanging with the project life stuff.

BTW, I've only ever heard the Chicago post term used on the boards.

Just call the screw posts or post screws.

If you're unable to find the longer post screws at the hardware/home improvement store, check out Michaels in the scrapbook albums/Project Life area.

Thanks everyone...I will check out Michael's and also take a sample to the hardware store of what I currently have. Yeah no one knew what I was talking about when I asked for Chicago screws!

Does anyone use those strap thingies in place of the posts? I bought some but haven't used a post bound album in a while..

Gavinsmom I bought some of those strap things but I could not get them to stick to the album...they kept popping off...I even tried using super glue but they still wouldn't stick. I have a few more sets but I was afraid to try them since I had so many problems!
