Icon14 FireStik K-1A quick disconnect review

Very easy to install! great looks and is stainless doesnt have that normal look of a quick disconnect so the stupid person wont notice(internal design)... and works great

How much length would this add to the total height? I'm concerned about my spring I run and this disconnect. It would be nice to have a quickdisco for garages and etc.

Joanne's CB shop in MI. It was $18 I think? I was there when it was bought. They are very sturdy. Both Justin (Toreador4x4) and Zach (OP) have these. We'll know this weekend how they hold up to wheeling.

I have to. We are still under state wide water restrictions. I just called the local Radio Shack to see if they had them and they didn't. Zach, can you grab one for me and I'll pick it up and pay you at the meet?

I just hadn't heard that it had been lifted... just that they'd lightened up on the fines.

Looks like a good set up.

Does it lock into place and stay pretty tight? I know that about once a week or so I have to retighten my antenna because it losens about a half turn.
