actually i have to disagree; i had this put on my rotator several yrs
ago and im very sorry i did. its a mechanical weak point since the point
where the quick disconnect joins the rotator is VERY fragile and tends
to wear quickly in the wind, or with stress on the cable. since you only
replace rotators every few yrs, go with some other type of arrangement.
this is a weakness than CAN cause you to replace the rotator
