Just a quick comment,

Granted, antennas turning on the shaft is annoying and a big pain to fix...
however, if the antennas are mounted completely fixed,  the "give" may end
up in your antenna, rotator, or mast etc.

The ability for the antenna to turn on its shaft can be a blessing in
disguise, preventing serious damage to your equipment.  I wouldnt recommend
"pinning" any antenna to its shaft, or crossboom, instead, concentrate on
getting the proper diameter mast, crossboom, and/or saddles etc.

just a thought
