You won't be after reading this page!
Most models today are built with an alu rod thorough the center section and the bellcrank. The safety wire is connected to this rod.
The safety wire is only held in place by the wood in the center section. If the center section brakes up the safety wire can easily come off the alu rod and there will be no connection between the safety wire and the bellcrank.
An open connection. In this construction the connection between the bellcrank and the safety wire rely on wooden parts.
Replace the alu bar with a M3 bolt.
