Hi 
Has anyone replaced the rubber seal on the base of the aerial shaft of a teleco teleplus x2/39 and if so where can I get one from
Thanks Mick

Try Googling 'Teleco aerial spares' there are a lot of hits.

Telecom don't do replacement seals. They are factory fitted and you have to buy a new complete ariel
A solution could be a CV boot the universal split type which you glue together or if you can remove the cable you could possibly use a silicone stretch to fit CV boot.

And lots of google'd comments that imply you'd be lucky if your Telco boot doesn't split within a year of being fitted.

The OP wants one. I helped point him towards suppliers. He didn't ask how long a replacement would last but I'm sure he will do his research. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Indeed you did (I certainly didn't mean to imply your comment was helpful).

I did what you suggested, not knowing which aerial I had fitted (but knew its boot was split), and found it was a Telco and some useful info.

I'm not sure if the rubber boot provide the total waterproofness or whether that's done by other friction seals (or sealant). Seems that the upper small diameter sleeve that hugs the shaft (with spring retainer) does need to be in good condition to keep the water out.

There was a thread here some years ago, suggesting the use of something readily available (was it a steering rod boot or similar).

I know it may sound daft, pond butyl rubber cut to size might do the trick with sealant.

Cymro, 
I think this might be the one you were think of ;-

I’ve a perished rubber gasket cover too & may have to replace . At the moment the rubber is attached to the aerial pole so that when raised the rubber gasket rises too rather than staying over the ring nut. Can anyone confirm this is how it should be?
