Much easier than using the individual plate nuts that wear out easily making it almost impossible to remove an instrument when you need to.
Worked exactly as advertised. Much less hassle than old-style inserts.
Great product, easy to use, why did I not use these years ago is beyond me. One of the best right up there
Easy, no measurement issues for standard instruments. Worth having if you find yourself removing instruments to gain access to other things behind the panel.
As the owner of Superior Panel Technology, I can tell you that we strive to do all we can to make a line of useful, quality products. The majority of the products that we make and sell were developed as a result of our building a Velocity and a Lindy award winning RV6. I am sorry that Steve Stucky had such a problem with an EZ Nut. Prior to designing these, we took measurements on instrument bodies from several manufacturers. All of the 3 1/8 instrument bodies measured in the 3.10 range. We made the inner diameter of our 3 1/8 EZ Nut as large as possible (3.165) and still have enough material to securely hold the pressed in stainless steel nut. This easily accommodated the 3 1/8 instruments we tested which did include a few UMA 3 1/8 instruments. We have contacted UMA and have been informed that all of their 3 1/8 instruments do have bodies that measure 3.10 EXCEPT for their 3 1/8 altimeter which measures 3.18. We have also found out that the UMA 2 1/4 instruments have larger bodies than other manufacturers. Their 2.25 body measures 2.33 in outside diameter which is wider than our 2.29 opening on the smaller 2 1/4 EZ Nut. We have sold over 5,000 EZ Nuts over the past 3 years and can tell you that they do fit and work great. Customers tell us that our choice of stainless steel over brass makes a stronger product and the 3M double sided tape holds securely once mounted properly. To our knowledge, the UMA 3 1/8 altimeter and the UMA 2.25 instruments are the only ones that do not work with the EZ Nuts. We wish Steve would have realized that it did not fit and simply returned it for a refund. Please contact me directly if you discover that our EZ Nuts do not fit another manufacturers instruments and we will try to post this information. Thank you, Ken Whitaker (firstname.lastname@example.org)
