Nenad should know the answer to this question!

Does anyone know what these moulded plastic tabs were designed for on the following Minelab detectors: SD 2100, SD 2100v2, SD 2200D, SD 2200v2, GP Extreme, GP 3000, GP 3500, GP 4000 ❓

They are not present on the GPX 4500, GPX 4800, GPX 5000.

Sorry missed this one, but Ian is correct. They were removed for a few reasons, but mainly to allow greater movement of the control box. I.e. you can slide it further back to counterbalance a big coil. Also meant you could slide your control box off the shaft by just loosening the wingnuts, and not needing to separate your armrest right out.
