    Unhappy Got a Slight Problem .................................................. ..............

    I was planing on fitting a OEM Shark GPS/Aireal Antennae this Bank Holiday Weekend .

    When I realized that I didn't have the hexagon nut in the ETKA picture you see below.







    I've asked a couple of people I know if they have anything something similar that would fit round these fine grooves as it looks like these twirl grooves are very close together.

    Picture below :



    Can anybody advise where I can get a similar nut to fit ? Or maybe a alternative way to secure this shark aerial down ?

    Stupid question but why not purchase the nut from the dealer if that's what you need to fit?

    Failing that, any nut & bolt specialist should be able to sort you out. Bapp ltd are a good shout.

    Got a Slight Problem .................................................. ........

    I can't tell in the picture but it looks like M20. Try B&Q for a 20mm plastic stuffing gland what you would normally use for cable and see if the locknut fits ur thread. Or u could try a 20mm SWA gland as they are the same size locknut and it would be metal, take it with u and have a try
    This is the stuffing gland:
