Default back window wiper suggestion?

Anyone got a suggestion for covering the ugly screw that holds the wiper arm in place?

A little stupid trivial thing, but kinda bugs me.

Thanks!!

well there are aluminum "fake" handles that you can get from moss motors. personally ive been meditating on a 8 ball, trying to figure out how to cut it in a mannor that it fits flush against the window. so far im defeated.

I think there's also a hand out there - when you turn wiper switch, it waves...
You could try to find one of those big keys they used to put on the back of VW beetles...[B)]

OH... fun suggestions, but I want to keep the wiper arm, just cover the hole where the screw is.

I don't have a clue why they just left it that way!

Look at other PTs.
There is a plastic cover that snaps over the hold-down nut.

Yours is missing.

Ok... so any suggestions on how I go about finding another one?

I tried doing a couple searches, but not sure what to look under.

I would think someone out there has come up with something to replace them with!

Thanks again.
