Tech Tip - Pole Spring

No tax

Running an aftermarket bracket (ATP, RRP etc) that accepts a spring perch?  Do it right by fitting a spring perch to get the correct tension on your pole.  Using an OEM Superjet spring enables aftermaket poles to float at a good level.  Use the pole bolt to tighten up the pole to the desired tension.  Some people like them to float and move easily, others like them to say put when they take thier hands off.  The picture above shows the unmodified spring in place.  You may need to cut the front arm of the spring off so it doesn't foul on the hood.  In the case of Superjets, it can be left as is, or removed to be aesthetically pleasing.
