  • Reporting in that mine were super snug, I was just barely able to fit it together, and there isn’t enough clearance to put on the bottom nut, so I probably should have filed mine a bit too.

    Also the battery compartment was 4 cell with the holes completely not lined up, although I’ll probably use it with velcro anyways, otherwise it looks like changing batteries will be a pain.

  • I ran into the same problem, and gave up after trying to do it by hand, thinking it can’t possibly take that much force. Then I tried it with pliers and managed to puncture holes in my plastic work surface with the pins (live and learn), but that loosened them up enough to make it work. Thanks :)

No public wish lists :(
