Don't know about the create rotator, but my T2X has a hole for a bolt to go thru
the mast and the adjacent bracket/support of the rotator.  The bolt prevents any
mast vs rotator slipping.

I also read your other post regarding a KLM antenna that slips as well.  My 
KT34XA (don't have the antenna you refer to) uses a flat plate with U bolts that
attach to the mast and another set that attach to the boom.  I drilled 
additional holes in each (mast, boom, and flat plate) to insert bolts to again
pin the things together.  I use the U bolts only for support to keep the antenna
from slipping down the mast (although the thru bolt help here too) and the boom
from slipping to and fro (again thru bolt also stops this action).

Hope this helps.  If I failed to adequately explain this, let me know and I will
try to kludge up some sort of picture or something.
