Hey guys and girls,


Seeing if anybody has gotten bored and/or funemployed enough to try and figure out how to remove the slop from the red release tabs on the Hill docking bracket. I figured the slop was no big deal until I saw an AC trying to get my rig out of the dock. They shook my rig like a rag doll trying to get it out of there :'( I had to show them that the little red tabs have to go allllll the way down to release the rig.


Any help/write-ups appreciated!

If you look under them there is an allen screw on each one. If they come loose you get slop. If they come very loose they fall off. I find that I need to tighten them once or twice a year to remove slop.
