Has anyone else had a problem with the clamp. When I manage to adjust it correctly - not a simple task - it does work well. However, my clamp, which I received as a Christmas gift, regularly has the joint between the shaft and the triangular piece coming apart on a regular basis. I have nearly lost the spring and ball bearing on a couple of occasions I could take it back to the retailer and change it, but I wanted to know if there is a 'cure;'. I wondered if tapping the sleeve that the shaft goes into with a centre punch might firm up the grip. Certainly looking at comments on Amazon this seems to be a common problem.
You are quite right, I now need to get the receipt from my wife who kindly purchased the clamp for me at Christmas from a retailer who is some way away. I was just wondering if there was any thoughts of a relatively 'easy' fix. Certainly I agree that the quality should be good so that this problem should not occur. However I do agree with your post and I need to go over to Liverpool to return the clamp.
Seems like you got a lemon my friend. I don't know of any quick fix as mine has never been a problem. That said....have you tried throwing it in a fit of rage?
I find that often works
