    Annoying little step, but worth it, the site is well organized and easy to use.
    The weird part is they don't take credit cards (???? It's 2019 man, come ON).
    And, the part number I had before is wrong.
    0702-D02A4 won't work.
    The right one is LUG-0701N
    £2.50 each lug!
    Ordered 4 of them, will update when they get here.

    Cheers!
    What do they take, wampum?

    LOL I paid with a debit card, so that worked.
    Got the lugs today, did the bass drum surgery, it now looks like it never had the thing on it!
    Also, MY GOD, that **** was heavy. Good riddance!

    I'm guessing your not going to re-wrap the bass? You just wanted to remove the tom mounting bracket?

    I know they have plates you can order or if your going to re-wrap your shell as I did... I used wood filler and a wood putty type of goo.

    This is what I used... There is much better stuff to match the color of your wood if you go to Home Depot or Lowe's

    That was after I filled the tom mount holes... Lots of sanding once the wood pity cured and it was rock solid. I used the yellow tube for dents and dings. It was easy to go over with a high grit sanding. Or you can go the route below...

    His bass drum doesn't have any extra holes like yours. The tom mount is floating above the shell. All he needs to do is remove it and replace a couple lugs so they are the proper height.

    Remove the 4 that support the holder and look closely in their threaded holes. In each one there is a very tiny allen set screw which holds the tube in place. Unscrew them, slide the tubes out and you have 4 almost normal lugs. You can move them on the bottom of the kick if the holes in them bother you.
    actually, you do ...loook again ,
    the bass mounting plate is mounted underneath the two lugs in front ... he a laest needs some washers up in there to act as spacers for a better asthetic get some new lugs ..

    Nah, just a matter of 3 easy payments, and 1 really complicated payment.
    We can't tell you which payment it is, but one of these payments is going to be hard. The mailman will get shot, the envelope will not seal, the stamp will be in the wrong denomination.

    Credit to the late Mitch Hedberg for the above "joke".

    if so, that would be cool

    Wasn’t that plate a PDF invention?

    Just as the RJ-100 and DR-100L/DR-100R are too. 20" deep bass drums were also made pretty much because of the call for them from this forum. Then virtually no one bought them.
