Sissy Bar INSTALL - HELP

Hello everyone,

Excuse me if I'm posting in the wrong section, just new to the forum and I am a bit confused. So, I've purchased One piece Detachables Sissy bar upright Part Number 51146-10A. I am still waiting on the Sissy bar itself but I bought the docking hardware and I installed it today. I have 2016 Sportster Iron 883. I didnt have anything to lift it with, which I've read would make the install a lot easier. But, being me, really inpatient I decided to still go ahead and do it. As expected, it was really tight back there and I was not able to fit most of my tools. Anyway, I managed to do it (see pictures below). I played around a little bit, but eventually took the stock bolts and installed the docking hardware. So, my question is do you guys think I installed it legit? I mean, is it tight enough? I was not able to tight the lock nut, I was only able to hold it while I was tightening the screw from the outside. I tight it to a point where I was not able to go any more, but I am still not sure if it is done right. Attached are the pictures so you can get an idea how I installed it. I basically managed to put the little piece inside, hold it with the pliers and unscrew the screw from the outside. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I dont want my girl to fly of the back one day because the thing is not tight enough. Thanks!

It depends if "your girl" is your loving daughter or some bitch that complains too much

OK, seriously if you have doubt they are not tight enough.

First get rid of that adjustable plumbers wrench and go get the proper tool.

Also get some blue loctite.

With the right tools you will be able to snug everything tight and then sleep well knowing the loctite will keep them secure.

What RKC said about using the right tools and blue Loctite. Loctite is your friend.

Settertude is reading this now saying WTF is this?
A ratcheting box wrench with a piece of tape on one side might help hold the nut on the inside.

Haha, lmao

Thanks for the help everyone. I did use some loctite, but still, looks like my friend has a torque wrench and a lift, so I'll just borrow them and do it proper.

You're way over thinking this, allen wrench & I believe 1/2 open end wrench, some blue loctite, snug it up and you're done.

Thats what I thought originally, but then I thought I might have done it wrong, so I figured I'd ask. Thanks!
