so my one knob just decided to stop turning the other day. i didn't want to use excess force or a wrench until i can understand if this is a common thing. there was no out of the ordinary use going on. i may have de-tensioned a little fast and hit the end a little harder?

thanks for any advice.

I just acquired a used Pilot, and one of the arm adjustment knobs feels very tight on mine as well. The other one moves freely although it doesn't look like it can drop to a lower weight load as well as the other. What causes them to seize up like that as the arm otherwise looks to be in pristine condition. What to do... oil?
