Question regarding DW Tom memory locks

Apart from the amount of screws, what I still don't understand is: does the memory lock and the mount on the tom do have bevelled edges, intertwining like shown in the photo @yammfan posted?


The image you posted unfortunately doesn't show a side-view shape.

My Design Series kit included a box of memory locks and an assortment of spare tension rods. DW is the only company I've seen that includes spares. Some of the boutique manufacturers might but it doesn't appear to be a common practice. Advantage DW.

I guess it’s a cool gesture. Though I do wish that they’d just include Remo USA heads. I think if it’s going to the DW name, then you’d expect they sound great out of the box and while it was ok, I had to immediately change the heads to get these drums to sing properly.
