Quick Release Nuts Photos/Opinions/Drawbacks?

Does anyone have photos of the quick release nuts installed on their door tops? Do they hang significantly below the plastic molding on the door? Also, are there any unforseen drawnbacks (ie. rattle, etc.). They seem like a great acccessory--just want to know before I make a purchase.

I sent an email, called and spoke to a lady that was suppose to get back to me on prices at Gulf Coast Rovers.

Still waiting... All that I know is that the replacement studs are cheaper there than at Atlantic British. I wanted to find out if their QuickNuts were also cheaper.

Regardless of where you buy them, they are GREAT! So easy to install and remove. They are barely visible in the door so don't worry about that. My Defender came with them already installed, but a friend of mine has the original bolts and he struggles with them. Just a couple days ago, driving with door tops off and a big rainstorm was approaching, I pulled over put the tops on and screwed them in in 2 minutes. get them!

Get them, no questions needed! You may want to carry a 13mm open ended wrench to tighten and remove. Helps them snug up and keep them from getting loose.
