I followed these instructions and they worked like a charm. I have no gunsmithing experience, but with the Spanner Wrench I was able to swap the Burnsed Loop out in less than 5 minutes. Great products!

Thank you for the follow up. My order arrived in record time. I am no gunsmith but your “how to” section made installation of the mount a snap. I am looking forward to putting my new sling to work at our next carbine match. Thank you again, the excellent quality of your products are only second to your amazing customer support. I look forward to my next order. Best regards.

I’ve tried other spanner wrenches and 2 of them broke. The spanner wrench from Jason and Gear Sector is quality and makes taking the castle nut off a breeze.
Total time to install the Burnsed Loop, 10 minutes at most, just watch out for flying springs. ;)
Great service, fast delivery and quality products, highly recommended.

The shipment time was amazingly fast and the install time took maybe 5 mins and it looks like a stock part. Thanks.

Spanner wrench is great! However I would recommend that you place your rifle into a vice first so that you can apply the right torque to the wrench as you might strip out the eyelets on a stingy castle nut, especially one that has been staked and had loc-tite applied. Just a pointer from personal experience, not the wrenches fault.

The Gear Sector Burnsed loop and castle nut wrench are both great, high quality products. Following these instructions, this is a 10 minute job, minus any time spent on your hands and knees looking for one of the springs that went flying
One note, though, when using the Burnsed loop and a Magpul MIAD (and quite possibly the MOE) grip with either of the two beavertail backstraps ("B2″ and “B3″). The upper rear corner of the beavertail will prevent the Burnsed loop from being tightened flush with the receiver. You will need to use a piece of sand paper to remove some of the upper corner of the backstrap to get a solid fit. This is a 10 minute job and does not effect the functionality of either the sling mount or the MIAD grip.
