Swapping the original moulded plastic knob fitted as standard could not be simpler which can be done in the comfort of your own living room using a small Philips screw driver & pick tool.
Simply remove the chrome cover from the standard knob by placing a pick tool or small flat screw driver under one end and gently lifting. Once removed this will reveal a small Philips screw, undo the screw and slide off the original moulded knob then using the screw driver gently tease both factory bearings or bushes (depending on model) from the original knob along with the shim washers. Fit one bearing or bush into the end of the new Black spigot which will face the reel arm and slide back on to the reel arm shaft then fit the washers followed by the second bearing / bush on to the shaft and into the spigot and tighten the screw. Finally once the spigot is mounted to the shaft screw the alloy knob on turning clockwise and nip up by hand.
Our replacement alloy knobs are manufactured from aero grade alloy and measure 42mm x 18mm have the facility to take a small 12mm x 2mm isotope and have a nice satin Black anodised finish making them totally Rodent proof!!.
