    I think I'm sorted now with my Chinese ebay special but if you don't need it then post it up and I'm sure someone will take it off you.

    The holes and slot in that look massive and I've no idea why they've sent carriage bolts with it.

    If it doesn't work I've got one spare as well

    Don't want to worry you but the description says it is made of PVC foam...

    John Hewitt has them in different anodised aly colours at £53 - his stuff is generally pretty good value

    My new plate arrived today and I’m very happy with it. Pretty much a straight clone of my existing plate with the exception of a lower slot rather than a hole. The bolts/washers/wingnuts supplied are imperial too so a match for my Halcyon weighted single tank adapter.

    What!!!!! You mean it’s not made of foam, it doesn’t cost 300 quid and it does the job.

    Bet anyone who’s paid more feels a bit silly 😆
