I got these in stainless with the stainless #82 fasteners to replace some galvanized that were falling off. I also got the insertion tool for $33, which didnt work well for me. I ended up using very fine needle nose pliers to gently twist the ring into a helix and sort of screw down over the fastener. The clip ring flexed back into its original shape without adjustment. I replaced 23 sets in the battery door of my Mooney in a little over 30 minutes once I got the hang of it. I have a couple of sets in a small pill bottle in the tool bag in case something falls out again. Much better than original galvanized.
These really hold my Southcos well!
The nylon cup wear washers and nylon retainers are great. A tip for installing - use a shorty screwdriver to push on the stud while pushing the retainer on the back with the tool (or with a nut-driver).
We called and were told even tho the picture is the wrong picture , these were 85 series springs, they are not , they are 82 series which are too small for our application.
Error in my previous review, I believe I only ordered 5 of these, not 10 as previously stated, I get a 0 rating!
This is supposed to be a white cupped washer but the picture seems to be wrong. Also the item didnt seem to be included in my order even though I ordered 10. The picture seems to be the same as item 82-32-101-20. Otherwise the order and service was fine.
