I like It. You say:

"The two threaded bars each insert into a hole in the bottom of the nose cone. They each screw into a nut in the nose cone. The nuts slide into place along a channel that is curved so that the exit is covered by the tube itself!"

What is the reason why the nuts are not fixed and have that slot?.
The thinking (and it was Dani's clever thinking, not mine) was that glueing a nut into the nose cone would be hard to fix if anything went wrong. This way we can easily pop out the nuts as needed. Also I think he just wanted to try out a cool solution!
