WARNING: Cancer and Reproductive Harm -


I’m still in the process of installing it however I just want to warn you to NOT Pull the knob out more than 3 1/ 8th inches otherwise a stainless steel ball about the size of a BB will fall out. Fortunately there is a link on how to reinstall the ball, assuming you can find it😀. You can also email the manufacturer, HCS products, and I’m sure they’ll send you a new ball. Here’s my suggestion for Aircraft Spruce, attach a note in bold letters for real men like me. Regards, John

Very poorly packaged! This has a solid wire core and mine arrived stuffed in a small box and kinked in 3 spots! Very hard to repair! Still operates stiff but I dont want them to send me another kinked up cable!
