Description

Recommend Buying Two

If you operate your mount remotely and are concerned about cables snagging on the RA clutch knobs, you may wish to remove them and substitute our modified set screws. Please do not attempt to install standard set screws, since they must be a particular length and profile to work properly. If you install the modified screws, you will have to use the 5/32" allen-head wrench from the set included with your mount to loosen and tighten them. Please tighten evenly with respect to the opposing clutch knob and do not over tighten. These set screws are only necessary for the side of the mount that has the cable. The normal clutch knobs will remain on the other side. Please note that each mount requires only 2 modified clutch set screws.

You can see a photo of this screw in place in the lower right-hand photograph under the DOVEKBREP product description.

Mounts: All 1200 mount models (DA, QMD, SMD and GTO) that have been produced.
Note: This is an optional item and is not included with new 1200GTO purchases.

Please note that shipping on this item is extra.
