TMann Posted July 15, 2009 Share Posted July 15, 2009 I was installing a series of six click bonds to mount the landing brake to the fuselage. As I was driving home from work I was thinking, wouldn't it be nice to have a small diameter soda straw to protect the threads while I was doing my layups over them. Then it hit me ....... I whipped into Home Depot (honking and swerving wildly) and picked up a package of the shrink tubing you use for covering the solder joint on wiring. I cut the length into thirds and put a little silicone sealant in the end and pushed them on. A shot from the heat gun and they shrank to make a tight seal around the threads. I did the fuselage side of the layups last night so all I should have to do is slit the sidewall and pull them off. Easier and more effective than trying to tape them.
