Lever Closer Pin


Hi again,

Now that the left cover is sitting well, i have the issue of the pin that indexes the lever closer, and the accompanying  locking nuts.

The spindle wall is not very thick, and the pin that accepts the slot in the closer has fallen out multiple times. The key on our 10L also falls out. Loctite may be the cure for that, but what to do for the 10K?
Should there be 2 knurled nuts on the end of the lever closer? And should they have set screws, or be tightened against each other?

Best to everyone,
