I was so excited to get my mongoose handle. Anyone one else have this setup. Did I get a defective one? Mine will only do one turn on. Got direct from mongoose. [Image: 630c87f1648ccf30ba4851764ba48ecb.jpg]

There could just be a burr on the threads of the handle or it just need to be tapped a little deeper.

WD 40 the handle and it's only one turn of the head. It's deep enough, put a tooth pick in to check that.

Get a few Q-Tips...put some oil on them and "clean" out the hole on the handle...don,t worry if the first one comes out black...but after using a couple it will work ....screw the Q-tips into the handle and then back them out.....ALWAYS works for me....!!!!!!

Did that, soaked in WD40, and aired out with compressor. Got couple more turns but still no good. Think they sent me a defect. Handle is hard to hold to force it. Very disappointed with the week wait just to get a paper weight.

Actually, your handle is different than mine.  Yours has the wave grip.  I don't know if that makes a difference, it shouldn't but.....

V5 - Farnsy Wave-5/8" Mirror Polished handle w/ scalloped (wavy) texture is what mongoose is calling it. I emailed them first and said that it will fit my head. But I must have the worst luck ever.

Taps are cheap on eBay you don't need a great one it's already threaded. I can do it for you if you want

That would be ok. But the handle is so slippery that I would probably damage the finish trying to hold it. For $75 I should be able to just screw and go.

I have found that although the ATT is M5X.8 several of my handles don't fit, I can only have one or two turns and that's it, other handles that are also M5X.8 do fit. Strange.

Seems like mongoose quality control needs improvement. A member sent me this pic. Does not work with a mongoose head.

Send it back to mongoose ,if your tap has the wrong pitch it will further damage it,let it be on them and not on you.

I got dub legend from a great member here. Fits my ATT head perfect. Had to alter it. Think there's something wrong with me. Mirror polish or sandblasted. [Image: 2496ce9cba08bb9ba4889df240d49667.jpg]
