This handy one-piece, washerless safety stop is machined from a solid piece of aluminum and anodized black. It fits in the end of all of the current style 1.875" diameter counterweight shafts: the 22.0"- (M12601-E), 16.675"- (M9404-B) and 9.675"- (M1053-A), as well as the counterweight shaft extension (M12675). It also fits into your mount's Declination Axis itself for storage and transport.
The Safety Stop's large threads and washerless, one-piece design make it a pleasure to use, especially in the field. It screws into the shaft-end of the declination axis for storage and transport, providing both protection for your mount and a place where it won't get lost! Because it will turn, be careful if using the Safety Stop as a handle when lifting your Dec. axis.
This safety stop is required for: all mounts that have the current style 1.875" diameter counterweight shaft.
