I'm looking for a rear bracket that the control box clips to under the arm that the metal arm cup tightens onto. Let me know if you got one.

What you might have to do is the same thing I'm thinking of doing. Re-locate the bracket to the underside of the arm cup. Drill out the 2 rivets to remove the bracket. Then you'll have to position the bracket where you want it under your arm on the rod. Use a punch to mark where to drill the 2 holes. Insert 2 new rivets and there you go.

Yes I thought of that but the bracket for under the arm is held on by the metal arm cup and is designed different than the one riveted on. I love that I was able to finally find an Elite but boy is it tough getting parts!

May try some experiments with other detector rod designs. I see one guy on YouTube used a Nokta Fors Core rod assembly for his Sovereign and said the lower rods also work but, of course those are just as hard to find😄

Those brackets have been impossible to find for quite sometime now.
I tried to locate one for a guy a few years ago and never could find one.
You are correct... the bracket that is riveted to the shaft is not the same thing as you need... I don’t even think those can be found now... at least new ones.
The odd thing is that you can still find the two piece cuff assembly.
One other option you may consider is to re mount that bracket using rivets and then use the little footrest that comes with the Sovereign and some Musketeer Advantage detectors or you may not even need to footrest to utilize the armrest.

Hey TC, Thought you went AWOL on us Sovereign users. Glad that you now have the Elite. I didn't much care for that mounting system so I improvised and made my own. The good news for you is that I still have that mounting bracket. Are you're still in need?

Absolutely! I will take it. Let me know how much you want for it.
