Default Steering Column Spins

Trying to mounted turn signal switch to steering column cover. The column spins around. What can I do to secure it ?

It's not the column. It's the plastic column cover that spins. Tighten the clamp tighter or put a short sheet metal screw in the plastic to keep it from spinning.

I pulled the steering wheel and black cover off and polished the actual aluminum one underneath and mounted lever assembly directly to that

I guess they just didn't want to paint it.

I personally like the bare aluminum. When you polish it, it makes the rest of the aluminum trim on the cart pop

I had same issue, the stainless steel tube spins around on original tube. Put a small self taping screw on back side of tube or under dash where it won't be seen.

CC, I like.
Next step: Throw away plastic cover and make aluminum cover for signal wires and rivet to column .
I got this.
