Just received the Arca style quick release clamp, overall it works as described but the spring in the lever to tighten it seems rather weak. Specifically the spring that holds the lever in place but also allows you to 'ratchet' it back. Mine just seems to have barely enough force to push its own weight back up so when you are tighten it down seems to have a rather flimsy feel to it and won't always engage if I don't make sure it re-seats itself properly. I was going to see if I can take the nut out the end but and put a stiffer spring in but appears its been put in with locktite or something.

Any suggestions?
