Castle Nut Wrench for MKV Post to DBox Threaded Collar

Recommended Posts

Im curious if anybody knows of a tool to help tighten and loosen the threaded collar that connects a 1.5" MKV Carbon Fiber post to the D-Box below. I have a dickens of a time ensuring its properly tight with just my hands. A handy tool would surely help, not sure if anybody has come across one that would work.

I would probably use a strap wrench. While I’m sure you could use a castle wrench, a strap wrench will be a bit more universal. Also, if you’re finding that you’re getting play between the D Box and the post, that may be from the edges of the flats on the post connector being rounded over, and I know in the past I helped someone by shimming that with some thin layers of tape to make it more solid.
