Rickochet If that were the case, a nut would be installed. Think 'shock absorber'.

The adapter is the "nut."
Rickochet I think that the rubber washer is just a "keeper" to keep the screw from falling out of the head.
Yep that's all it does.
garyt1957 i have yet to have a wrench that actually clicked,
Then you're probably not tightening the screw tight enough, it does take a bit of effort.
I've used maybe 5-6 different brands of wrenches and they all clicked at about the same point/torque factor.
darpar Could be, but I hate to thin k I need to go tighter than I do. I wish I had an older club that I didn't care about and I'd really crank on it.
garyt1957 it'll only crank so far, then CLICK!
I wouldn't worry about over tightening.
The wrenches have a pre-set calibrated torque factor that no matter how many clicks you hear/feel,
you won't over tighten the screw or damage/strip out the adaptor.
And it's pretty easy to prove this concept!
garyt1957 how many wrenches do you currently have that will fit multiple clubs? Can you take one, clamp the shaft and twist it until it clicks or breaks??
