    AT gold and Pro mod

    Had to send my detector in because the screw mounts broke from water pressure going back and forth when I got it back I figured this would help. It stabilized it no wobble and cheap fix.Click image for larger version.

    That is a great idea. Cheap and simple. Have a box full in my shop as well. That will be the first thing I do as soon as it comes in. Thanks

    I would not do that to a new detector under warranty. That is a modification and will very likely void your warranty. Garrett has great service so let your warranty run out before making any mods. Just a heads up on a situation where you could screw yourself.

    You are removing screws that hold the cover to the speaker that are already there and putting these brackets on to strengthen the box to shaft, just unscrewing the screws, adding brackets and putting screws back in same place will not void a warranty if that voided a warranty then removing box from shaft to send in for repairs would void the warranty and if you send it in for repairs covered under warranty you send only the box not attached to shaft so they would have been removed before being sent in.Also my detector was still under warranty when I did this and had to send in because a pin from the coil broke off inside plug and had no issues of voiding warranty, all you send is box or coils they don't need shaft to work on your detector.Thanks for the heads up on possible voiding of warranty though.

Great idea for a future fix, if needed. The only concern I have is whether or not the screws would be deep enough (after adding the bracket) to retain the cover on the box, as originally designed. If you don't have any problems, though, that's great!
    Haven't had an issue, the screws are quite long and the thickness of bracket is about the thickness of a penny, if that much it could be thinner.

Well worth it... but I don't want to have to do it again. If this is an easy fix for it, in the future I might use it.

    My shell had broke and after sending it in, That is when I decided to do the fix.I water hunt a lot and the pressure from the water side to side puts pressure on the shell that was why I figured they broke in the first place.Luckily for me the shell broke while still under warranty so no charge.

    I got my AT Pro from kellyco used. they replaced the box and chip twice free I think I left mine in my car and the glue on those bolts and the arm cradle both came loose I did put screws in the same spot they were bigger ones worked great for months till winter came and I sent it in. Just make sure the screws don't hit the board or anything inside. And how is your AT for being water proof after this mod

    Still waterproof as I didn't change a thing with the detector these brackets are in holes that already existed with original screws holding them.
