Try your local Ace Hardware for stainless screws of the right size. Ace has a surprisingly big selection of fasteners.

Yep, just take your short bolt and the nut down to Ace, I found some similar longer ones that work great for me.

No I'm not putting the stock clamp on top of the Cork puppy. But I will admit a mistake I made especially since everyone is so willing to help around here. I actually need shorter stud screws on the reel clamp instead of longer. Dumb mistake. But I will definitely try Ace for those as well. Thank you all so much.

I had the same problem when I used the Cork Puppy with my 25N. I just used my dremel to cut the stud screws a little shorter. If you want to buy a shorter stud, try Marshall’s Industrial Hardware at 8423 Production Ave in San Diego just off Miramar Rd. They have one of the largest selections in the San Diego area.

Same issue on an Avet JX. The studs screw into real body with 1/4-20. I just pulled studs and used right size SHCS with flat and lock washer.

Studs might be same on your reel. If so, easy fix. Just make sure you count the turns or threads in reel body. I over tightened one and it deformed reel body making it hit spool. Nothing that permanently damaged the reel. Just an inconvenience and a learning point.
