Use your sticks for extra leverage. With the sticks parallel, you can put wingnuts between them and turn. It's easy to over do so be careful, but is more convenient than the pair of pliers that was forgotten in the car.I feel like I can relate. I like to refer to myself as "fastening challenged". I can never properly tighten or fasten anything. From drum thrones, to mic stands, to whatever else. Don't know what I am missing. There has to be a secret lol
I second that, I have two thrones and the one that attaches with a clamp does not wobble at all.
