Default Adel clamps

I did what others suggested, safety wired them together. If you have to, use a longer bolt.

And use AN3 bolts instead of #10 screws where possible. Easier to tighten.

Mine (S/N 120222) uses castellated nuts and cotter pins. In one of the Skyview installation sections I found a picture of one of the factory planes that showed the same part attached the same way. I don't know when they made the change, but originally they used cotter pins.

Received mine May of ‘19. Maybe Scott can share what prompted the change?

I second that! Mine uses cotter pins. The only issue I had was that after torqueing, I couldn't install the cotter pin for 2 reasons.. the castellation didn't line up with the drilled hole (when does it ever!?), and also there was interference between the standoff and the cotter pin during insertion.

I had to make sure the bolt's drilled hole was up/down and not left/right. So maybe with locknuts, there's a better probability that builders will get the torque closer to spec.. ?
