Antenna crank Handle too long


I have a 2008 Tiffin Allegro Bus, when I try to raise the Winegard antenna with the slides in the handle hits the slide, I have to open the slide 4-5 inches so I can raise/lower the antenna.

Does anyone know where I can find a short handle crank or a Knob that can resolve my problem. I have looked on several sites but all I could find it the standard crank.

This is a problem because the crank does other things in addition to cranking (it holds things together)

There is a device, it is a metal loop with a tube attached to one end, the tube is side drilled and tapped for a set screw

You will need a washer about the outside diamater of the knob's Hub
and one of these devices and some other things.

Remove knob, CAREFUL IT falls apart when removed (The spring above it) then apply washer and device described, Lock it down with set screw same as knob was originally.
Now you need a tool that can "lock" into the device and be rotated by something,, perhaps an allen wrench (1/4 inch) and a battery operated screwdriver/drill.

That will do it.
