    Must have for aftermarket shift knobs!!!

    I purchased the Retro Style 6-Speed Shift Knob in Satin, only to find the boot retainer that came with the product did not fit completely, as it would not slide down past the threads. So for a few weeks I have had the shift knob installed with no retainer and a bolt to keep it in place. Needless to say, this was very disappointing and bothered me somewhat. Even more so because I had seen this product when I purchased the shift knob and I was very tempted to buy it at the same time. I didn't because the description of the shift knob shows that it came with a retainer already. I rated this product a 3/5 for "bang for your buck", only because at the time I was "thinking" about buying this product with the shift knob, it was only $12.95... When I found that I really did need to buy it, the price went up to $19.99... adding to my disappointment, That aside, this product is a perfect fit. It is threaded (but not all the way down the shaft, as the shaft opens up a little at the bottom for perfect fitment.) The threaded shaft allows you to delete the bolt that comes with some shift knobs for a very clean and comfortable look. I am very glad I got this product and I would recommend it to anybody that purchases an aftermarket shift knob.

    Shift knob Spacer ~ A MUST

    Finally they came out with a simple part that is a must if you have an after market shift knob. Last year I bought the black retro shift knob from AM (which I love) but the problem was the 1" gap between the boot and bottom of the knob. The large nut was exposed which I painted black just for disguise, but I never was really pleased with the slack on the shaft. I was constantly pulling the boot up to hide the treads on the shaft. But now, in a 5 minute install, that problem is fixed and it looks great. Best $12.95 I've spent in a long time. Get one if you have a cool shift knob and you'll see what I mean. AM is #1.

    works great

    Fits good, looks like its not there (thats good), and imo a must if you are going to add an aftermarket shift knob. Installation is like changing a light bulb. Even I could do it.

    A necessary piece for retro shift knobs

    I recently bought a white retro knob through AM and thought I would cheap out and just use the the plastic retainer that comes with it. Well, 2 weeks later and I ordered this upgraded retainer and couldn't be happier. The included plastic retainer just doesn't do the job. This metal piece works great and is much better looking as well. This retainer should come with the retro knobs AM sells at a discounted combo price.

    NOT FOR 401A

    I had called up and asked if this would work with the 401A interior, color accents, and was told it would. I asked again making sure the gentleman knew the shift boot was smaller he again assured me it would fit. It arrived today, and what do you know, it wont fit. I would have to grind down the material to even come close. Thankfully I have a friend who needed one and I got my money back on this. Do not use if you have a 401A interior.

    Great Product!

    I purchased a white shift knob from AM and the retainer included did not even work on my 2012 gtcs. This got rid of the ugly nut and completed the whole look. The fit and finish on this is superb. You can't beat the price, I would've paid $50!!

    a retainer that fits

    This retainer is just what I needed on my 2010 GT. In the past, the retainers that came with the shifter knobs either did not fit or did not look good. This one screws down easy, sits right on top of the boot. It takes a little bit of tightening, but eventually the knob shift pattern aligns up straight. Great product.

    Good product, only wish they came in different heights!

    Yes, I like this product. I wish I had a choice in which height I wanted, not just one height.

    Needed with the Hurst handle

    A perfect fit. If you are installing the Hurst handle you will need to purchase this part separately.
