  1. Thanks for posting this. I feel pretty stupid now because I’d tried all sorts of ways to put on the retaining clip and couldn’t get it on. Gave up in disgust. Finally [duh] thought I’d check the Web. Kept getting American sites which had sensible nuts or cotter pins on their wheels. Then, Eureka! Found your video and the use of the socket – so simple – but I didn’t even think of it -that’s why I feel pretty stupid.

    Anyway, you’ve solved my problem and I appreciate you having taken the effort to put this video up. It’s surprising how sometimes the simplest little tasks can be headaches if you’ve never done them before and are not thinking clearly. THANK YOU.
