I had the same opportunity on my Vandersteens, you dont need to cut the spade completely off trim off one side and it will fit into the barrier block. Maybee that is why they call it a barrier?

Thanks for your response.
Yeah I was thinking I could file them down to fit into the barrier block.
I will try that this weekend and hopefully it will be the solution.
I guess you're right in regards to the barrier block being named that due to the restriction it has on what size spade you can use.
When I had VAndys I found that the plastic "ears" that projected upward were slightly flexible and with gentle pressure on the spade, I could compress it slightly and then there was enough "give" on the plastic to get spades in. Unfortunately, if you have the larger Cardas spades, I doubt you will be able to do that.
