i've had a klippermate for a while now and its a 2pt mount system. i do notice a slight a distortion in head shape sometimes and i think its lead to one of my racquets cracking. so i was wondering is there any way to make it a 6 pt mount?

maybe you could weld one? the klippermate uses a relatively-standard bar with clampy-things on it.

FROM KLIPPERUSA WEBSITE:

9. Is the 2 point mounting system of the Klippermate strong enough or do I need a 4 or 6 point system?

The turntable of the Klippermate is made out of solid steel. We guarantee you will never damage, crack or distort a racquet on the machine as long as you follow the proper mounting procedure. This strong 2 point system will protect any racquet no matter what tension its being strung at. The Klippermate's turntable allows the natural flexing that a racquet must go through as its being strung. Past research has shown that some 4 or 6 point mounting systems could damage the racquet internally by holding the racquet too rigid.

If you had the Klippermate for a while I am sure you have more than paid for your initial investment. Maybe it is time to get a new machine with 6pt mounting.

You won't have any trouble selling the Klipper.

After you convert it to a 6 point mount, you might want to install a Wise tensioner.:wink:
