1. Hey everyone, We’re going to start a weekly email to surface interesting threads in the forums. No worries, you can easily unsubscribe if you don’t find it interesting. If you’re like me, it’s nice to have someone willing to poke around a big community like ours and find the most interesting stuff. Saves time and I hate missing something great. It worked really well when we had someone discovering the best photos for the home page rotation back in the day. And if you have something fascinating to post, maybe this email does everyone some good by getting it noticed. Let us know what you think when you get it. Your feedback will make it better as we go (thread). Thanks! Baldy & rudy1220

    As an option, the user can install a “keeper cord” joining the two side clips to each other by drilling a small hole in each one near the end. A light diameter nylon cord works to form a connection between the clips that when kept behind the antenna, will prevent the clips from falling down due to vibration or loss of friction from normal wear.

    Start the side clips from the top with the keeper cord on “top.”


    Slide the clips down, and keep the cord behind the antenna as you go.


    It should look like this when the clips are on and down. This way, if the clips should loosen up over time from wear, they won’t slide off. It’s just a good backup to the friction fitting. After time and wear, depending on each user, the friction may loosen and the keeper cord will prevent side clip loss.
