Think about it - what good does a self locking nut do if not all its threads are engaged?
In this application, just to keep it from falling off.

Pole pivots on bushing so infact the nut does get locked tight and torqued.

In your two bottom photos it looks like the nut is simply hand tightened and it doesn't look like the bolt and washer are bottomed out. I thought at first look that you had just "dry fitted" it together.

So if the pole does not pivot on the bushing, the bushing will turn in the bracket?

Come on - show me at least two threads showing on the bolt.

It is just mocked up to test fit.
Paint is next.

Bushing goes all the way through pole not just on outsides.
Make sense?

I can take it apart and show you if your not clear.

Exactly - so torque the nut enought so all of its threads are engaged and it won't fall off.

So does the bushing bottom on the insides of the bracket or go thru the bracket legs also?
