Default Experiencing trouble with Ludwig P1728 memory locks

I ordered five of these recently from Drums On Sale, for my floor tom legs and l-rods. But upon trying them out, I found that they don't work! No matter how tight I screw them, they just don't secure.

What makes this all the more frustrating is that a P1728 lock came with my bass drum cymbal mount and it works fine. I noticed that, unlike the lock on my cymbal mount, the ones I recently ordered came with washers. But even after removing them, nothing changed.

I was wondering if anyone else on here might have experience with these. I'm thinking to return them, since I have no use for non-functioning locks. But if someone has a solution to suggest, I'm all ears.

I have ordered them from Drums on Sale in the recent past.
If you are using them on a 3/8"-9.5mm rod they should fit.
I have noticed that when the P1728 memory locks are new you have to really tighten them to a high torque when you first install them to conform to a locking fit around the rod.
After that if you loosen them you have to pry them apart with a screwdriver to move them on the rod for adjustment.
They are not the greatest memory locks in the world but they do work.

Thanks for the advice. I'll look into it when I get the chance.

So I gave it another try, and they seem to be working now. You were right about having to really tighten them. I probably wasn't doing it well enough on my last attempt. Thanks Bob!

You're welcome. I wish that they made a hinged memory lock in that size :)
