We have searched high and low and been unable to find better quality posts that come with the keyed washers. The included Dayton posts are very expensive, but they are excellent. I actually ordered gold plated posts from a dozen (supposedly reputable) Chinese suppliers to see if we could find something to help bring the price of the kit down. I had them all sent for independent metallurgical analysis, and every single one was proven to be a fake (no gold content at all, poor alloy composition or simply not as advertised).

So, for now we stick with our reliable (but expensive) US suppliers with proven track records. For almost all the parts we use in any kit, they are all "Tier 1" US suppliers (Mouser, Digikey, etc). You really can't trust anything that doesn't come from a reputable US supplier with an iron grip on its supply chain. That is why we only use these high level trusted suppliers, and it's important to know that so you can compare apples to apples in terms of the prices of the stuff sold in the diyAudio Store (ie: yes you can buy bags of fake parts and bad customer service on eBay for less, and you should do whatever makes you happy).

If the inlet could mount from the inside, you could solder vs using fast-ons and then heat shrink the live line. Then that would just be two more screws to remove. A slightly larger inlet opening would allow to mount on either side with no impact to function.
Got it. This is the first time I've heard of this suggestion, but it is noted. Thank you.
