Part# 05-12365


Prevents nose gear from digging into turf on dirt and grass runways.

This device was created to help prevent flip-overs of the Vans RV-A Models on irregular surfaces. It installs in the bottom of the nose gear, providing surface area to keep the gear leg from digging in on contact. Installation only takes a few minutes and can possibly prevent a flip-over and serious damage to your aircraft. The center post is precision machined from 4130 grade aircraft steel as is the skid plate. Assembled and heat treated to a 45 rockwell, then zinc plated to provide a lifetime of protection for your aircraft. This comes with a vibration preventing O-ring for inside the gear leg and complete installation instructions to install inside the wheel pants out of sight. Total weight of this installed is 7 oz.
