The nuts snap in place.

This reduces the need for tweezers or pliers.

Nuts do not slip freely like they did on the wooden plate.

The rod opening is a bit larger since I want to experiment by removing the entire bearing later.
Does not press and hold bearing, but I figured that the bearing is quite secure in the wooden panel anyway.

Materials and methods

Two 3mm nuts which you can take from the existing setup.
