The SK2003A Series Mounts were specifically designed around the latest generation Cessna/Lord J7444-42 Series Mount. The SK2003-14A, -24A, and -42A all have the same flex feature as the J7444-42.
Seeing is believing; The Skybolt product is a vast improvement in overall quality with the improved features integrated into each dash number. This brings the -14 and -24 up to the performance level of the -42. The Skybolt SK2003-14A, -24A, and -42A look and install exactly the same as the Cessna/Lord part it replaces using the same fastener length. The SK2003-14A, -24A, and -42A are fixed depth, Non-Adjustable Platemounts.

so far not on airplane yet but test fit to camloc seems OK
I wish you would indicate what plate mount to use and the correct stud for a particular Cessna 172 I own a Cessna 172 and I bought two plate mount for the engine hood and I do not know what is the correct stud to buy
Better than the original Southco ones
I maintain several 172s used for training and the OEM mounts made by Lord are lucky to last 200 hours. I think they just use poor quality Rubber and they dont seem to get any better. I started using the skybolt mounts about 1 year ago and so far not one has broken so if that Trend continues, Id be willing to give it 5 stars!
rubber to hard and tears off mount plate. Had three in row one time.
Well done as usual! Keep up the good work.
Darn things keep breaking! Wish they would last longer but no alternative!
Great fit! Much better price than the OEM part as well.
Great mount for saving cash as well as performing the task. Will purchase again.
The item was as described and was a perfect fit for the previous mount. I hope it lasts long.
These are less forgiving than original. Cowl brackets and reinforcements break on a regular with flight school aircraft. Usually, damage occurs at L/H and R/H 2nd to the bottom mounts. We use Skybolt throughout except those two spots.
These seem to be of better quality than the original Lord mounts. They hold the stud firmer and have a more positive feel when seating the fastener.
You people have given me great service for many years Thank You
Fits perfect, very strong construction.
SK2003-42 are exact replacements for Cessna 172S cowl mounts at a much better price. Always good to have these handy and check your mounts frequently. Loosing just one caused others to fail much ore quickly and risks your cowling rubbing on the prop spinner.
