Ask me how I know.

Probably a similar way that occurred here now that I remember...

Boy you can tell my short term memory is getting really weak.. I had my hands on a set of those pins the other day... Sent to replace the 1/2 x 20 P Trac style.. You are referring to the ones with the flat in the middle??

Since it is obviously fresher in your memory dvw, please describe the adjusting end for us..

Again quite true Rick. There are a few sk8s that have the click action next to the plate and no lock nut I can see..

Some / All of the Boiani plates, the Paioli dance / art plates, the Skater art / figure plates, the Italian Dance WIP and the American Whip (although it was not a click per se, it just had the adjuster nut between the lock nut and the cushion) to name a few besides the ATLAS...

Keep me honest guys. I appreciate it..
