    I’m using the adjustable system from McKenzie with the metal inserts that slide onto the posts. These are 300 inch antlers and I cannot get the inserts inside the antlers to stay affixed on the posts. I’ve tried Bondo, like it said to, but that didn’t work. Then I tried super glue, Gorilla glue, but it still wiggles. I’m thinking maybe these antlers are so big and heavy and the surface area holding them is just too small. Any suggestions?

    Thanks. I tried Premium LocTite today. If that doesn’t hold I’ll try the JB Weld. If that doesn’t hold I may have to scrap it. This system does employ male/female tubing. You saying get a bigger size?

    Apoxy sculpt packed in tight and let harden. Or there is a liquid apoxy or resin used in molding a lot (I’ll have to get back to you on the name) that sets up hard and and will be very secure.
