The hardware that is supplied is cheap and not aviation quality. What appears to be nylock are substandard Chinese copies that do not lock.

Absolutely worthless. Off by more then 30 degrees in some directions. Attempted to calibrate and can make accurate at North, but then off by 30 or more degrees over a 90 degree span. Unusable and is being removed from my aircraft.
