  • By James from Bristow VA USA on Tuesday, May 01, 2012
  • Pros:
  • Review: Do not buy this product. It requires special connections on your engine cowling. I have had to get out 2 birds nest in the last 2 weeks. I ended up having to get another normal engine plug. don't waste your money on this crap!

    Q: How is the cover secured to the aircraft What hardware is included and how invasive is the installation? Is the hardware visually noticable when the cover is off?

    A:

    It is secured to the aircraft's cowl by drilling two small holes to permanently attach the male end of the snap button to the cowl.  There are two methods:

    The first one uses a self tapping screw and requires the drilling of two 3/32" (.093) holes.  The installer should use caution when using this method as over tightening the screw could result in stripping the hole.  This is fully explained in the installation instructions.

    The other method uses a machine screw and and a lock nut. This installation requires the drilling of two 9/64" (.140) holes in the cowl and should only be done if there is enough room to slip your hand and a wrench inside the cowl to securely tighten the snap button assembly.

    You will see the two permanently installed male snap buttons on the cowl once the installation is complete.  Installation instructions and the hardware for both methods are included in the packaging and it also includes the step-by-step instructions with photos.
