Quick-Release Wing Nut


Lightweight black nylon wing nut.  Lock-nut for the base of the Wind Instrument on the mounting rod — no tools required.  Handy for temporary mounting when daysailing.

This is the metric M6 size, which is very hard to find in nylon.  It is not metal, so it is lightweight and non-magnetic, which is good near the digital compass in the tail of your Wind Instrument.

Extra strength:  If you would prefer a stainless steel wing nut, email after ordering and ask for a switch (same price).  The stainless steel one is heavier, but is also non-magnetic.
