Title: Port dogs
Post by: svsurprise on June 08, 2015, 01:34:54 pm
I've been rebuilding the starboard side settee shelving on my 44W/O and dimpling my head by bumping into those dang bronze wing nut port dogs.  Has anyone replaced theirs with something more user friendly?  I glanced at McMaster-Carr and saw some nice big plastic knobs with metal inserts that might work.   Any ideas are welcome. Thanks, Don

Hi Don,  you might want to take a look at stainless steel "eye nuts".  I have them on the port dogs where I bang my head the most, and they are more forgiving than the wing nuts.  They can be found online and I noticed that Ebay has them also.  Matthew
