The threaded base on our LED Buggy Whip has a 1 inch ½ 20 external threaded piece that can be attached to your vehicle in two ways. It can be attached either directly using the washer and hex nut provided, or it can be easily screwed into a threaded quick mount already installed onto your vehicle. While it is not absolutely necessary to purchase our QM2 mount with your threaded LED Buggy Whip, it is highly advisable that you do. Our products are manufactured with high grade 316 steel and are machined for a precision fit.
Other mounts may be compatible with the threaded base, but you may be taking a risk of misthreading, having an ill fit, or damaging the whip base. All products must be flush mounted with no threads exposed. Improper installation will void the warranty.
The quick release base model of our LED Buggy Whip does not have any threading and must be secured to your vehicle with our QRL03 mount using a locking hitch pin.
