Does anyone know where to get 3mm canopy bolts that have a nylon/plastic attatchment on the head that can be undone by fingers which is a lot easier to undo the canopy bolts without having to use an allen key ?
Thanks

Screws

there are plastic caps, you can glue on the m3 hex screws, and us your fingers to screw/unscrew the canopy
i think QuickUk have them

MA sells them ($$$$) as does Rick's
(KNOB3) and probably even just
your average Aussie industrial supply
house.

Just use a vise (soft jaw) and press them
in.

I use the ones DavidH posted on the 1st link, if you go to my gallery and look at my Blue/yellow Freya you can see how they look installed, not a closeup view but you can see them.
They work very well and just use your thumbs to remove them.

I went to the local hardware store and they sell 3mm bolts and the caps that can be compressed onto the screw for about 50 cents each when you compress the cap on the bolt use a 3mm standoff over the bold then put it in a vice and make the bolt assy. Exactly like MA.

Check out gjestico canopy screws. I just got one of his muffler clamps and it is a work of art.


I am sure his canopy screws will be the same.

Greg send me a email ok.
