Default RE: Valve Screws - Suggestion for a better design

I like that idea from Real Wind. I'll have to start doing that with the boards I use two-point plates on. Thanks.

I know my weaknesses. I called up a shop and ordered 20 of those board plugs. They are red in color, so they stand out enough for me to notice when I don't see them.

I usually loosen them up in the coldest/hottest months because I'm paranoid. I've only lost one in the past year, but I doubt I'll run out anytime soon. ;-)

As an aside, I've found myself looking through the bolts in the hardware store to find stainless steel 1/4-20's for my boards. I have quite the collection now. ;-) I'm still missing longer lengths though.
