Protecting your CB or amateur radio antenna from impact is a very good idea. The installation of an antenna spring to provide shock protection is one of the simplest, yet most often overlooked accessory add-ons available for CB antennas. It’s important to properly match the spring to the size of antenna that is being protected.
An Accessories Unlimited AUSS3M Medium Duty Stainless Steel Spring is sized just right for protecting 2 and 3 foot tall antennas. Antennas such as such as the Firestik Firefly or Wilson Flex antennas are light enough that a medium duty spring will offer the proper flex, without oscillating while you cruise down the highway. If you are looking to add a spring for CB antennas up to 5 feet tall be sure to use a heavy duty spring.
The AUSS3M is constructed from stainless steel to resist weathering and featured squared caps on the top and bottom for easy wrench tightening. A female 3/8x24 threaded top fitting allows easy antenna installation, while male bottom threads into standard antenna mounts.
Don’t become of victim of a snapped off antenna – protect your radio communications gear and your vehicle from untimely damage by installing an AUSS3M medium antenna shock spring now!
