By design, the three bigger Spreader Plates are a whisker over-size for the pole – this caters for changes in tolerance of each pole batch.

To achieve a perfect fit, wrap 1.5 to 2 wraps of electrical tape around the join where the plate fits. Apply the plate, then push down firmly and tighen the EzClamp on the top.

Added benefit is that moisture will have a hard time getting in this crack.
