    I've had the same problem. No reply from MEC after sending them an email over a week ago.
    Can't find anywhere on the web after hours of searching either.

    You need to send an email to info@mec-shot.de but this will immediately bounce back with a response in German as part of their anti-spam measures. In the message there is an url you have to open in a browser which will ask you to do something that a web bot won't get right. Once you do the correct thing the email will go through and in future your email sender address will be accepted.

    They were very helpful and sent me replacements and gave advice on how to stick them back properly

    "you have to stick with superglue.

    First fill the hole with glue
    Second dip the knob once or twice in the glue.
    Third Place the knob into the hole and press firmly.

    There must be no air under the knob."

    (just minor edits to help their english translation - my german is non-existent)

    Excellent support and they are great butt hooks.

    Also did the same with my mec trigger which had a rounded hex head on it. Top service.

    I also got a call from Alan at Edinkillie this morning to say he was back from Germany and had collected some buttons from MEC. He is very kindly popping some in the post, free of charge and said that if anybody else is having trouble then to give him a call.
    Top marks to Edinkillie and Intershoot!
