    Good point, if you can get it snug on the inside you can *usually* do the final tightening from the outside!

    If you don’t have a child of your own in stock I’d suggest borrowing the neighbours.
    $5 and a boat ride when it’s done should cover it.
    DO NOT offer candy as compensation.....that won’t end well.
    please ignore the above suggestions if you drive a white van with no windows.

    The dang thing loosed up a little again too. Crow foot wrenches are one of the few tools I dont yet own. Sorting that out and with some red locktite should be able to get it tight and hopefully it'll last

    Hole in the deck and a small access plate over it. And if it gets loose again, it's easy to retighten.
    I carry a gun because a cop won't fit in my pocket.

    The wood block that it is mounted to is rotten! The only fix is a four inch hole saw right above the pocket that held the original block and replace it with a good piece of oak glassed in.Iknow it sucks,but been there.I happened to wreck the deck and replaced mine with the deck off.On mine the upper stud was bent down at the factory in order to make clearance for the top deck.

    Solid tip indeed and I'll look into it closer over the winter but I dont think its rotten because it doesnt seem to have the best purchase ( its not exactly flat where it should be ) so unless I crank the hell out of it and risk damaging the glass it seems to be still very slightly moveable. My nephew is slender and youthful and I am hoping to recruit him to get up under the deck to help sort it out. I might make some special washers to plumb it up and give it a square fit
