    RF Stalk attachment

    Okay I give up, I tried looking fo rthe last few days but I did not find a good answer.

    How to I attach the RF stak to the helmet via the screw method. It's the actual screw type I am a confused about. I know it goes through but how/where do I put the stalk onto the screw and get the cover on?

    I forgot to add I am using on do BKBT's metal stalks on an MS3 helmet.

    Give me a minute and I'll post some pics to help you out. By the way, is your RF Stalk resin or metal?

    You'll need to counter-sink the existing hole in the stalk in order to fit the earcap on. Is this what you need?

    Here's a diagram. I wonder if I can get a degree in 'MS Paint'.

    I actually did a slightly different method. I dremeled out a depression in my outer ear cap, then JB Welded a round head screw into it. I made sure to line it up with the center of the RF stalk, and that way when I screw my outer ear cap on, it secures the stalk.
    But batninja's method works better if you want to keep the ear cap removable.

    I was thinking about doing this, but putting pin at the top of the cap too. Then, it will stay in place but still be removable. Similar to how the magnets are cut out, but no magnets. It'd just be to keep the cap from spinning around, the screw would be holding it on.
