on my ks18-l they breaking off ... made a 3d print to go round the brass nuts link below

That looks like an easier solution if one has a 3d printer handy. How are they holding up?

Hi Seba,

What kind of glue did you use ? it was super glue ?

No, it was hot glue:

Hello Uno solo,

I checked the inside side of my KS 18XL and i don't see any hole so i wonder how do you do to to put the screw from the inside ?

Thanks

Hi nguymin,

That is interesting, mine had holes, but they were too small for the screws. I had to enlarge the holes, which I did with a powered screwdriver and the screws themselves. It was easy since the existing small holes were good pilot holes.

If you don't have any hole, a drill would be better.

How many standoff nuts have failed so far?

I have just received my wheel so none nuts have failed but i see many posts were the nuts are gone. Maybe it’s a good prevention to do what you have done.

But i don’t think it’s possible if the nut is not broken because the hole of the nut is too small to perforate from the other side.

If you have a new wheel with all of the nuts still in place then @Seba's hot glue solution looks like the way to go.  It would be significantly less work than installing backing screws.  If I bought a new wheel I would immediately add a big hot glue base to each nut going all the way up and over the top of the nut a little, just like Seba did. If @Stephen Halford released his 3D printer model file, I would be tempted to try his method too. There are 3D printers at many libraries and makerspaces now.
