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.
The bitterness of poor quality, lingers long after the cheap price is forgotten.
Buy the best and only cry once!
