I figured it might be handy cause most people don't carry wire snips with them. I'll upload pics in a little while. Ride safe guys.
When I'm putting my quick release wheels back on, I line everything up and snug up the axle nut/qr lever until it will just barely close by hand. Then I open it up, give the axle nut another half turn or so and swing the lever over. At this point, I need to slide the box end of my 14MM wrench over the lever and use it to swing the lever to the locked position. It takes a lot more effort to pull a wheel off that way (and I have no worries about ever having a wheel coming off trying to make it on it's own).


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
