Yeah. It fits in the groove and is tight enough to hold up the grommet but lets you pull it up and down to adjust the height. If you get a smaller diameter grommet that holds itself up, you might not need the zip tie.
I'm sorry for bringing this thing back from the dead, but I got some questions concerning the setup for an aftermarket shift knob. I'm looking to get the Voodoo shift knob. I realize that the threads are compatible(otherwise I wouldn't get it), but my true question regards the "flush" look. I really don't want the shift rod showing. I've heard that the shift adapter doesn't work with the Voodoo knob. My question is would a grommet/zip tie combination on the shift rod itself hold the shift boot up to the Voodoo knob. Like no adapter or anything. Just the knob screwed onto the threads and then having the shift boot held up to the knob as close as possible with a grommet and zip tie. Any help regarding this subject would be appreciated. I'm really concerned about compatibility and the "flush" look before I go ahead and purchase the knob.
The grommet will hold the shift boot up if you use the stock collar. I'm not sure how it'd look without the other grommet between the collar and shift knob. How flush it would fit depends on the shape of the shift knob.
