Seat bolt knob?

Postby Cosmic_Jumper » Thu Sep 05, 2019 6:11 pm

Back in the day... there was an aftermarket seat bolt which was extended a bit longer and had a knob on the end. Made it much easier to open and remount the seat.

Does anyone have one to sell or a close up photo of one?

Yeah, I know some folks don’t feel the necessity of that seat bolt, but I suppose that I’m too anal to not want that bolt in situ. And it’s a PITA to carry around a 10 mm socket & ratchet.

If you don't find a bolt with a knob you should find a bolt with a wing nut. Any hardware store should have them in different lengths.

I went to Ace Hardware and bought a 6m knob about an inch long. It had a plastic head which looked like a thick wing. When I screwed it in the plastic head went in a little far and rubbed on the seat while I tightened it. I then added a 6m nut and screwed it on tight before screwing in which kept the wing from contacting seat while screwing it in. Works great.

Like garyloos, I bought some M6 thread knobs. I guess I lucked out since mine doesn't rub against the seat.
