Description

The EQ5Bolt Replacement Latitude Adjustment Bolt for EQ5 Mounts, is hand made for MA by our engineer, using a Stainless Steel which has the best resistance to bending we can find. Performance is better than any similar commercial product, regardless of price. The bolt now also has a longer “handle” to make turning easier, especially when you’ve got cold fingers.

You just need this (longer) bolt to adjust Latitude at the South end of the mount, it’s not necessary to replace the other bolt as it doesn’t take any load, it’s only used for locking the adjustment.

For latitudes similar to the UK, the EQ5Bolt can be all that’s required to deal with the “bendy bolt” issue, which usually occurs with these mounts sooner rather than later.
