Default No More Wellnuts!

I've been a lurker here for a couple months now just reading and learning. I thought it was about time to make a contribution of my own in the hopes of helping someone else. I've read a few posts about the dreaded well nuts and how some people, including myself, just don't like them. I've spent countless hours looking for something better with no luck. Then I thought, wait a minute, I design trailers, this can't be that hard. I wanted this to be something that anyone with basic tools could probably make themselves without spending a lot of case. After a couple different ideas, this is what I came up with.

Here is a link to the write up I did with pictures in PDF format. Download it if you wish.

Feel free to try this out and share with others.

Hey Bubba that is an awesome idea. I would Patten that asap before ya know it hd will take the idea from ya. I ha e a couple of questions one is is there sort of isolator between the windshield and the top of the bolt ? What is the thickness to the top of the head of the bolt that would make the shield just as close as with the well nuts?

Wow, that is a good idea. Those wellnuts drove me crazy when I first started changing shields. Great job.....
