I used Nylock nuts...the same ones I've used on RC model helis (they get the crap beaten out of them) and I've never had one to loosen on either. These on my Scamp
were #10's. The pictures I posted clearly show the nylock nuts I used. I will NOT go back to rivets on my closet and risk more leaks
. I've had this fix now about 3 yrs and not one single loosening....and yes, I keep a watch on them. It's easy with this setup.
