    Mar 26, 2009, 4:44 PM - Attaching Rangefinder to Stalk #1

    I have an aluminum "stalk" (is there a better term) and a resin rangefinder. What would be the best way to attach the rangefinder to the top of the stalk?

    Thanks!

    Agreed. Drill 2 small holes through the bottom if the RF. Then Drill and tap 2 holes in the top of the stalk to match up the holes on the RF. Use 2 small screws inside the RF to screw into the stalk. It'll never come off unless you want it to...

    Have to agree with the screw method. It's worked great for 2 of my helmets.

    I have a Sgt Fang, and i was wondering about how to attach the stalk, screw sounds good like stated. but i was wondering how exactly? i havent found a good size that doesnt leave the stalk securly fit. its either a tad to small or to big. and i worry that the screw will eventually just wear out the stalk with its egdes ( does that make sence??) i would like the stalk to stay up by it self, dont see that happen even with the right sized screw.

    I used a screw with a flat head and wingnut. Fett_MD

    I need a way to keep my rangefinder on the stalk as well. I have an aluminum stalk and the metal rangefinder made by i think it was atomic...something or other lol.

    There is a slot on the rangefinder for screws but how the heck do i drill holes in the stalk that small?
