I thought so but itís even more clever. The brass cap unscrews to reveal an Allen bolt behind it to tighten the wedge.

So that's what the hashtag means.. its a Facebook link thing. Facebook and I decided that were were no longer friends some time ago so I don't speak their lingo. . But I found Grand Rappel in a web search. its pretty interesting.
