I attempted the mod that Bob posted a picture of. As straight forward as it may seem it is quite the opposite. It requires extensive disassembly of the radio which I started to do but then it occured to me by doing the modification I would be voiding my warranty. I don't anticipate something going bad on the radio but you never know, instead I opted for the .47 cent eyebolt mod and what a night and day difference. Incidentally as a result I scratched the outside of the lcd facia cover, the next day I called Horizon to order one and they told me they don't sell internal parts, I would have to send the radio in, after asking for to speak to the manager for an explaination of policy, they opted to sell me one for 5.00 and I received it the next day! The facia panel sticks to the case from the front, easy to replace.
