  • Pintech pad rack mounting trouble...

    Alright, I have two newly-acquired Pintech Silentech pads. They are on my acoustic drum rack, attached with a Gibraltar clamp and L-rod. However, they are rotating about the L-rod, and will do that no matter how hard I tighten it. I think part of it has to do with the fact that there's a big goofy plastic knob to tighten it, and not a heavy-duty metal lug or something similar. Any suggestions to help me keep these two in place? (I'll have some pictures up soon so you can see what I'm talking about.

    KuzinRob,
    I had Pintech Silentechs that had the plastic knob too. You've got to crank that thing. Are your L-rods long and thickly crosshatched? Pintech makes an extra long one for this purpose so you can get some leverage on that knob. Also, Pintech eventually replaced the knob on newer models with a threaded crow-bar which gives far more torque ability. Perhaps these can be ordered and retrofit. Howard

      Maybe these would help, they are what came standard with my Tour Elite Kit, and they work great...

      TEK No-Slip LeverLok knob with ratcheting action. Standard on Tour Elite pads, perfect upgrade for our regular ConcertCast pads.
      $19.95 ea.

      Found here on the bottom of the page: http://www.edrums.com/hardware.htm

      The actual handles with studs are made by "Kipp". They are available, probably cheaper, through Reid Tool Supply Company at: www.reidtool.com

      Good Luck,
      Wes

        That Reidtool site is a great find! I have a Yamaha rack with several of the knobs stripped. The threads come right off the knob. Maybe I can find a replacement. I think they are #12 threads which is almost impossible to find! Kind of like drum head screws. Where do you buy those?

            What diameter and length? I have a Reid Tool catalog at work, and maybe I could help you out in finding them...

              Thanks for the advice, guys! I appreciate the link to the Reid tool site; I just ordered a pair of the plastic handles as found on the Tour Elite series pads. I had to ask my dad for the thread size, cause I'm clueless when it comes to that, but if anyone is looking into getting these as well, the model number I ordered was KHA-130, and the stud is 3/8-16 threading and .59" long.

              Thanks again, guys!
