Default Love TS2 Mounting in collar??

I've searched all around but haven't found any info on how people are securing their Love controllers to the collar. The little plastic clips that mine came with only allow for a very thin panel thickness, and I've got 3/4" wood. How has everyone secured them that mounts them directly to the collar?

mine slide back far enough - not a problem for getting the clips to clamp to the face.

Well crap. They must have changed the design. It seems the max panel thickness on mine is no more than 1/8".

at the Dwyer Instruments website, all the Love boxes look adjustable to me - post a pic of the side view of yours...


it should slide on from the back until pressing against the back of your cutout, panel thickness be damned...(within reason)

Unfortunately, the new design had two discrete clips that actually slide on from the side, not from the back. Here are a couple pictures.





And here's the Dwyer drawing:

My only idea at this point is to enlarge the cutout and then use a piece of SS sheet metal I glue to the wood.

ahhh - that whole back section that "protects" the wires can be unclipped and discarded... that will make your rails show up and you can slide the clips further back.

I don't believe so. Those ridges are only at the front so it wouldn't be able to ratchet to anything further back. Additionally, those clips slide in on these slots:

That black plastic around the back wire section - doesn't remove? I don't have this model, but I have three different Love models, and on all three, the wire protector (a plastic "U") un-snaps off the back, revealing more ridges.

Well I wasn't thinking there'd be more ridges if I removed that piece, but even if there are, it's clear the slot ends there, so I don't know how the clip would attach and slide. I'll take a look at it when I get home tonight though.
