I purchased this port hole protector because I wanted to add a port hole to my resonant bass drum head with the original Gretsch logo on it. Replacing these heads can be expensive, so I sprung for this alternative. I have always been a fan of Gibraltar products, so I ordered this without hesitation, knowing it would be of good quality. To install, I removed my resonant head and mocked up where I wanted the port to be. I adhered the inside/anchor ring to the inside of the head, then used the ring as a template to cut the hole with a razor. Use the inside of the port hole template to do so. Next, I slide the front port bracket through and locked the two pieces together. Whole process took five minutes. It makes mic'ing my bass much easier and does exactly what I hoped it would do. I recommend the product for those looking to keep their stock resonant head but who also want the benefits of a port.

Looks good but difficult to install

If you get the two halves the least little bit misaligned, which is way easy to do, this thing is a nightmare to install. It's best to just spring for a ported head...Read complete review

If you get the two halves the least little bit misaligned, which is way easy to do, this thing is a nightmare to install. It's best to just spring for a ported head and a decal.

        Comments about Gibraltar Port Hole Protector:

        Easy to install. As another reviewer mentioned, attach inside female half first, cut hole flush along its circumference, then insert male outside half and snap halves together. Just be careful to get outside ring through the hole evenly before pressing the halves together since the adhesive is strong and once it begins sticking you can't realign the rings. Seems like it'll stay on there forever.

            Comments about Gibraltar Port Hole Protector:

            Here's the deal....this is exactly the same as a HOLZ or Bass drum O. It's cheaper and only available in chrome. The instructions tell you to trace one ring and then cut the hole. Do not do that. If you've installed one of the others before do this the same way. Adhere the back side ring to the head and then cut your hole letting the blade ride along the inside of the ring. Make sure you get them to snap together. I usually have to push on the female inside ring with a wide flat screwdriver to get it started...then it's pretty easy from there.

                    Needed to have port hole on my 22" bass drum for recording. I did not feel comfortable with "hot can melt" method and tried this port hole protector. Adhere inner ring then cut the head along with the ring and snapped outer ring. It was a 5 minute job and the result was perfect.

                      It's helpful if you buy a port cutter, which makes the installation easy.
