Last night I replaced the "big ears" on my Vita Uke with ratios. I couldn't use either original hole, and the attachment point of the Ratio closest to the body of the uke was at the point where the neck begins to bend. Still, I was able to get them installed, and I'm pleased with the looks. I used the original Vita Uke collars because the shaft of the Ratios is so thin.

Very nice. The Ohana Vita looks odd with the ears. Good upgrade.

Do the thin shafts work loose over time if they are placed in a larger hole?

I doubt it. The screws hold the tuner firmly in place, and the original collar looks good and gives the shaft support. Any movement would be minimal. It's not like it's a driveshaft that's constantly spinning.
