That's interesting, yes I had a wood screw, or at least a very coarse machine screw, mine also didn't feel real snug, till I held the wing down tight and carefully tightened it down till it was bottomed out fully, I didn't dig around and see a blind nut since I saw it was a wood screw I think my attachment is pretty snug, and I don't see that I'll ever need to pull the wing off any time soon, In fact I taped over all the wing joints to keep water out.

I went ahead and popped off the little foam wing support because I was going to glue on a taller hardwood block for the screw to meet.
What I found was that there was a 3mm steel blind nut in there, but the hold down screw is a wood screw. I am going to have to find a 3mm machine screw long enough to reach the blind nut. Or just replace the entire wing mount set up with something else.

Did everyone else have a wood screw for the hold down screw?
