Sometimes there is a locknut that will stop the spike from turning. If this is the case you can loosen the locknut and free the spike to move. Give the speaker a gentle rock so the spikes punch through the carpet and underlay. Then grab a level and some patience if you have uneven floors. smile Hope this helps.

The spikes were calibrated at the factory so for Gawd's sake don't adjust them or all the phonons will be out of sync!
