Product Description

The Vater Slick Nut Quick Release Wing Nut is Unlike the traditional wing nut, the Slick Nut doesn’t need to be threaded on or off and won’t loosen or fall off while you play. Simply hold in the fastening button, put Slick Nut on cymbal stand to desired tightness and release button. The Slick Nut can also be used as a theft deterrent by simply tightening the hex set screw on the side of the body. This makes the Slick Nut nonremovable, a great feature for drummers who have to leave their drum kits unattended for a period of time.

The Slick Nut comes in 8mm, the most common thread size for cymbal stands, with top cymbal felt already attached. Hex key and replacement felt included.

Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Feels sturdy. Simple design means less that can go wrong.
Features
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
Great for quick set-ups and tear-downs at the push of a button. The biggest flaw in the design is that the opening isn't large enough to accommodate plastic cymbal sleeves, which meant I had to trim most of the sleeves (although I suppose if it latched onto the sleeve, everything could slip off together). To be honest the ability to lock it in place for security isn't going to stop a determined thief, it's really more a deterrent for the casual sticky fingered person.

General
Your general opinion of this product.
Good for the drummer on the go. You can have a whole set of cymbals off in the time it take to unscrew a single wing nut.
Value
Was this item an overall good value?
By itself it's a decent value... but if you're changing out an entire set the cost of these can add up really fast.
Appearance
Appearance
The only other downside is that these look kind of bulky, though probably less so to people in the audience. Certainly less sleek looking than simple wing nuts. Chrome would be nice...
