FIZ 3 Lanyard Thread Stripped

I prepped for a show today and the HU3 I was given by the rental house has no lanyard loop because the thread where it screws on has been stripped. I brought it to the attention of the rental house, but they have no other available units and it's also a sub-rent, so they weren't willing to re-tap the hole or make any other modifications to the unit.

 

Does anyone know an alternative way to attach a lanyard?

 

Only idea I can think of is adding a 1/4-20 eyebolt to the back where the microforce screws on. Kind of in a weird position, but it would do something. Any other suggestions? Someone suggested super glueing a plastic adhesive ceiling loop sort of thing that you would find at a craft store to the bottom, but I wouldn't want to trust that.

 

Thanks

Rental houses these days aren't what they used to be. I have been working out of Arrive CSC for the past few years on my show in NY. They suck balls. When they run out of stuff (which is often) they just say they can't help...instead of subrenting or, god forbid, buying more gear!?

 

I swear that most of there stuff they don't even look at when it comes back in, they just sent the case to the next show. You wouldn't believe the shit shape stuff shows up in. Horrible and embarrassing.

 

The but on my hu3 backed out a few years back as well...just put it back in with a nylon lock nut

Good to know since I have 3 complete 3 motor HU3 systems each with a single channel on subrent with Arri/CSC. Might have to rethink, any suggestions as to what NY rental house to put them with?
