Default DW 5000 Hi Hat Clutch

Hi,

I have a DW 5000 Hi Hat Clutch but unfortunately the black bolt/grommet/screw thing in bottom of the clutch has fallen out (not the lower chrome bit you would adjust with a drum key)

Does anyone know what this part is called or where I could get a replacement?

I purchased the Hi Hat stand off ebay so there is no warranty.

Many thanks in advance.

WWD.

Are you talking about the felt? Not sure what black grommet thingy you're referring to.

Haha I've heard of those!

But seriously tho I've been on the website and DW list the part number as
DWSP393 - LARGE CLUTCH NUT

With regards to taking a photo, it's a little tricky to take a photo of a part that is missing but I'll try and get time to take a photo of the part later maybe...

Cheers.

I think you could use any threaded drum tuning bolt, especially one that is chopped down and intended to secure hardware, as opposed to tuning a drum. Also, you could take the part to a hardware store and find something. I would suggest a wing bolt, so you could loosen/tighten it without a tool.

Just take the clutch to Home Depot and find a replacement set screw.

Or even better, get one of these: http://www.amazon.com/Remo-QuickLock.../dp/B0002GY79C

Thanks Soupy that remo clutch looks awesome, I have vater slicknuts on my cymbal stands and they really help with speed of packing stuff away after playing.

Actually, if you use the key rod, the set screw isn't all THAT important.
It just keeps the slotted screw part at a certain level. Look inside the part and you'll see. Most of it's threaded, and there's a part that is separate. The set screw basically keeps that section from wiggling too much.

That clutch lock is a PITA, but I use it too haha!

I just keep my top hat with the clutch connected to it so I'm not removing it all the time.
I don't use a ton of cymbals, so it fits in the front HH pouch of my bag just fine.

A set screw is easily found at a hardware store and should only cost a few cents.
A "no biggie" replacement.

There is a new Gibraltar clutch that's very quick also. The clamp on it keeps the rod from getting chewed up too.
Might be an easier find than the Remo clutch.
