Anyone else find that the SKY and the pole adapter isn’t all that tight? I’m a little concern that a good blast of wind and/or vibrations could at some point twist the SKY off the pole adapter.
Only if the outside diameter of the poll is too small.
Not the part where the adapter connects to the pole, that’s tight and I added a little bit of rubber tape to make sure it’s a good tight fit. But the part that connects from the base(where the battery compartment is) to the pole adapter.
I can’t recall anyone reporting that occurring through months of field testing where several field testers reported some pretty ferocious winds. But . . . tape isn’t a bad idea if you are concerned about it.
Ah, I understand. I haven’t seen anyone report that.The three I have are very tight. Not as tight as the Air but very snug.
Is the rubber O-ring gasket in place???
I know there was one on one side, but didn’t noticed if there was another on the other side. I would assume there should be two?
I also noticed that the twist lock between the sky and the adapter is easy to separate, possibly too easy. I’m not sure how well the sky would survive a 20 foot fall.
it probably wont and probably the kneck would be damaged just do as i do just as a precaution wrap a single layer of relatively thick tape at the joint…
ps i drop one 80 feet in January
photo is not good quality ive lost my regular roof access point since a recent fire but thats all I do with the tape
O-rings are used on only one side of any joint. All of my mounts only have one…
Yes, just received and mounted my Sky and Air. 1" mast is a bit narrow. Resolved with a couple of wraps of duct tape before sliding the base down.
