Cabin Heat Box

What kind of swivel connector are people using to connect the push/pull cable to the heat box flap control arm? For some reason I'm having a senior moment in finding something that works.

Steve,

A friend of mine just picked up his Highlander from the factory last week and I took over 100 pics of it yesterday afternoon.  Here is what they did on his.  I'm going to duplicate it on mine.  It is fed right from the two can exhaust he has.

AS sells a white plastic defroster opening with slider hole which I plan to mount on an Al flanged hole that they also sell, which will go through the extreme forward .032 stainless steel floor, right between the pilot's rudder pedals, with another hole on the passenger side between the pedals or through the firewall. The scat tube comes directly off the heat cuff to the flanged hole with the slider.

Steve your fiend has a nice plane I did all the electrical on his plane and took it for a ride with Troy the day before I left for Sun-n-fun, anyway the heat on this plane is very good we opened just one side  while in flight and had to close it very quickly, it got very warm inside. I might also mention that was the most fun I've ever had in plane.

Here is a photo of our heater box. You can see where the cable housing is held in place by the aluminum "clamp" and it connects to the arm that opens and closes the flap in the heater box to allow the air to pass through or not. [/img]
