Hey guys,

I'm having a little problem with my FMS QS stand I recently purchased. I've started to screw in one of the metal pillars but it's stuck. It must have gone in slightly wrong. I can't unscrew it or screw it in any more. I've even tried to unscrew it with two people turning it. Any suggestions of what might work?

Thanks.

Use vicegrips and gently un screw. Make sure when you start the screw that it is straight.

Try using a strapwrench, which is a piece of nylon or cloth webbing to wrap around the tubing without scratching it. It has a metal arm which gives it the leverage for turning. It is not a very popular item, but you might find it in a hardware store or have them order it for you.
By the way I have received my stands and QS 8's. The stands are very well built in my opionion. Maybe you have the problem resolved by now.
