Hi

I bought some speaker spikes but the insert are in M8 while my spikes are n M6. Since I can't return it I need to find a solution to use them.

Do you have any solution (adapter, metric size insert, etc)? I take a look at Home Depot but the don't have metric size insert.

Thanks

Frederic

Get some M6 nuts and fasten them to your M8 inserts.
JB Weld or Gorilla Glue.

Might be easier to sell the spikes and move on... However, if you're looking at adapters (and many exist, though you're not going to find them at places like Home Depot), you better check the thread pitch as well. M8 is not enough. There are M8 available with 1.25, 1.00, and 0.75 mm thread pitches. Don't assume anything!

Good luck, Dave

What am I missing here? This isn't that complicated. Why not just buy the correct spikes and keep or sell the other ones? :?

Now I am really confused. Are you the original poster with a second CAM ID, or are there two members from Montreal with the same spike issue? :wink:

Adapters do exist to convert sizes up or down or from metric to SAE but they will cost more than your spikes.
