    I have searched so if I have overlooked this topic specifically, please accept my apologies.

    I ordered a URD SS and after reading the install instructions, I am concerned about how to properly stake the screws. Given the importance of these screws not coming loose, I want to make sure I do it correctly. Would someone mind giving me detailed instructions on carrying out the "stake" process? Even better, if you have photos from when you did your install that would be great.

    Thanks in advance.

    your supposed to center punch the edge of the shift extender thread enough to where it keeps the set screw from backing out. I was nervous about that too

    Lots baby!
    I have done it several times. I use a sharp chisel. You could also use a center punch. I loctite these screws in, then I use the chisel and upset a thread along the perimeter of the screw.

    I do it in two spots along the perimeter of the screw and the shift ball extension.

    I guess I will have a better idea when I get the SS. It look like you tighten the screw down and then on the edge of the screw head hit it with a center punch which essentially would put a dent in the screw head and the metal directly underneath???

    Coupe,

    How can you "upset" the screw's thread if it screwed all the way in?

    Again, when I see it up close maybe it will make more sense to me.

    a good staking is where metal is moved into the head of the screw, just the same as on weapons...

    if metal is not moved into the path of the screw coming out, then its not a good stake...simply chiseling wont do it..there are special punches out there that should do this..

    these images are of an AR bolt carrier gas key staking:
