Attached is couple of pictures of the FWD blkhd taken while it was off to do the windlass installation (other thread). Since the solenoids & motor is behind this I wanted a quick method of removal of this blkhd. So I installed 2 locating pins that fit into 2 holes I drilled in the FWD settee. So the blkhd slips into these holes and is attached with 2 screws on top. It turned out to be quite a solid setup.

Also you may notice the magnets. The steel bar is held both in the open & closed positions. While in either position the fabric is held taunt so it looks way better than it did originally.
