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.
