The vineyard of Margaret River settled on the brand name of ‘Ring Bolt’ after deciding this was more acceptable to the market than ‘Knob Spanner’ or ‘Nipple Flange’.
Pictured is one half of a Grade Status 530 TV and FM antenna, it’s guts removed and replaced with an Engenius EOC-2610 wireless access point. The motorhome already had the TV antenna fitted, and we don’t watch TV, so it was an ideal place to fit wifi externally to the vehicle.
