Set screws in cage strip easily.
Be sure to install right 1st time
This CIP Unimount is a very nice looking and lightweight addition to your marker. You have your choice between black or chrome cage to mount various colors of on/off asaís. When you install the Unimount, be sure to do it right the first time!! All mounting hardware comes with blue Locktite pre applied. Installation / removal has to be done in three stages. First Install the cage to the grip frame. Donít make the same mistake I did by not tightening the mounting bolts enough because I was afraid to crank them down on my new Angel. The provided mounting bolts are short enough (1/8"?) for Angel 4 application (anything longer than 3/16" will hit the Angel board). Being that the cage is the first stage of the install; if it is left loose, it is the last stage of removal. Needless to say, I had to go through allot to tighten one loose bolt. Second stage involves fitting the ASA into the cage and tightening the four set screws. Choose which side you want your hose running out of (I recommend right side for right handed player and vice versa) and tighten it down. Be careful! These set screws will strip easily, which is a very, very bad combination with Locktite. Third and final stage is installing the 90* fitting for macro or braided hose. I recommend running the fitting at a 45* downward angle so the hose will not interfere with the on/off knob. Install the hose and you are golden. Once installed, youíll understand why the Unimount ergonomically correct. With a drop foreward, you would have to bend your wrist around the tank. The unimount leaves the tank sitting further back , allowing you to straighten your wrist and keep a comfortable, lower and tighter profile behind a bunker. I can tuck in just as well even with 68ci tank. I recommend using a 70ci Crossfire peanut "stubby" tank for best comfort possible. The knurled on/off knob is easy and smooth to turn once it breaks in some. When turning the tank off the valve will bleed off any unused pressure left in the line, leaving less psi held to the regulator which needs to be shot-off.
I do not regret getteing this Unimount for my Angel at all. It balances great, looks good functions well and above all else is comfortable to use. It's more difficult to remove than it is to install, but that's the price you pay for such a compact ASA. 9/10 because I think they could have made it slightly easier to install / remove but otherwise GREAT PRODUCT!

It's fairly easy to turn when pressurized, I've never had any problems turning it off, even with my gloves on. You can feel resistance when it's pressurized just like any other on / off, but I've found no complaints.
