Default Quick release hubs

I was looking at my interior the other day trying to figure out how to lay things out. I noticed that access to my bolsters was going to be real hard no matter how I put them in. Anyone tried the quick release? Any problems, likes, dislikes. I was thinking it could even be a little bit of a theft deterent.

Thanks
Jon

I always throw one on whatever the flavor of the month is. Personally, I like them.

I got one for Christmas. Along with a blue Isotta wheel.

Fred the quick release hub is polished and the release levers are red. Can the color of the release levers be changed? The red seems a bit much with the blue wheel.

Thanks,

Neil

Fred or anyone else. My concern is something along the lines of a big impact and then they fall off. You know like the old CHIPS tv shows . They would really make a wonderfull improvement to the bolster as long as I am comfortable with the safty/reliability.

I've never experienced that. But, I don't have many large impacts when I'm behind the wheel in the warehouse.

We have them on a number of boats with no problems reported.
