Antenna crank falls off

The metal rod for the antenna crank doesn’t have a flat spot for the set screw to tighten against. We currently are using vise grips. Any suggestions?

A C clamp might work but vise grips are probably better. Or you could bend the rod 90 degrees to create its own handle.

Or, file a small flat spot on the rod for the set screw. It wouldn't take much.

You could use a drill to make a shallow depression in the shaft for the set screw. But you might have to file a small flat spot first to get the drill bit to stay in place.

Might just need to get some new parts and make it work as it was designed. http://www.winegard.com/sensar/sensar-parts
