Double tabs for sleeves!

I would like to share an idea we have used for our course. We have a new pin location that will be used as an alternate for two separate holes. First off we have mach III baskets. We have made the installation of sleeves at our course cost 8$ per sleeve. Using 1 1/2" galvanized steel we have found that a 1/2" nut welded to the side provides the perfect tab. This now brings us to our new idea: the double tabbed sleeve. Welding two nuts to our pipe has allowed us to add two new pin locations with one sleeve. I know this is almost never feasible with other course layouts but I thought I would share the tip. Here is a picture of the installed sleeve:


BTW the course mentioned is Lava Creek DGC in Paradise CA.

This is already done at Grass Valley. Hole 5 and 7 share a sleeve as do hole 9 and 18 share a sleeve.
Its also done at Penn Valley with hole 1 and 4.
