I have a pole that is 1 15/16" that the Slimline dish is currently sitting on. I can't get it to tighten the to the pole securely. I am guessing an adapter from Solid Signal will not work because it seems to me the adapter would not fit over the pole. What is the best thing to use between the dish and the pole to get it to tighten down?

Thanks guys.

Solid Signal has the 2" diameter tubing for a pole mount.
The adapter you have is made to go from a 1-5/8" tubing to the 2" tubing for the Slimline.

If you have already cemented the 1-15/16" dia ( 1-1/2" pipe ) in place,
you could go to a Home Depot or Lowe's or a sheet metal shop and get a piece of sheet metal 1/32" thick to wrap around the pipe and make it fit.

A couple of layers of chimney flashing will likely fill the void.
