Default Lost the knob on my bounty hunter tracker IV

I lost the knob for the disc/notch while the sensitivity/power still has it.

I know it's not messing with the function but I want it since it's missing one. If I can't find it in my room or in my car anyone know where I can get a replacement. Is it a universal knob? I don't mind if its different colors, I just want a knob.

Call Bounty Hunter. They should be able to send you a replacement knob at little or no charge.

I may be able to find something around here from one of my "kid" detectors from ages past.

I will try contacting Bounty hunter and see what they say.
They will probably want like $10 bucks for a little knob. Vs if a hardware store has one that I can take off something or buy loose will be like $1 dollar.

I have had detector makers send me items like that for free.

Don't know for sure, but it looks like many common old radio knobs would fit on that post. An electric guitar volume/tone knob would look and work nice. They sell them cheap at guitar shops.

Radioshack is perfect for this sort of need.
