    I recently went over the installation instructions for the Hipshot BT-1 Bass Xtender / D Tuner for my musicman bass which I bought off of a user on this site. Step #4 on the installation instructions say, "Reassemble tuner being sure that the nylon spacer washer (and BT-1's spring tab) is in place." What is the spring tab? There is not part in pictured in the instructions called "spring tab". Any one have any idea what this is?
  2. is it the circlip split ring thing that goes round the front of the post to stop it falling out?
