Your photo confirms my issue. This item is discontinued and out of stock. What is the replacement?

The photo confirms the issue and provides the replacement.

276-7761 replaces 276-2577.


The new ones look very low profile, but they look less structurally sound to me unless I am mistaken. What was the logic behind switching designs? Is it a financial decision, design improvement, or both?

The new gussets are capable of being mounted in more places, and utilize the full square slot. This allows them to be used with 1 or 4-Post Nut Retainers to create a really rigid joint.

The larger slots are nice-to-haves. Iā€™m sure all of you know that the VEX Mechanical system can be imperfect to assemble together at times. Using screws in square holes can create some mechanical slop/lash in assembly, so these gussets were designed in conjunction with the 1/4-post nut retainers to help eliminate this.


Can always cut ones from flat vex plate. Could use steel for even more strength.
