PRO is off on holiday for another week+ so I can't ask them. Hoping one of you can help.

Got the VZ upgrade from a 3rd party. Gimbal is all pieced together, but I can't get it to slide up the post. It seems to be hitting the top insert that tightens around the post and aside from loosening the quick release, I can't figure out how to loosen it any more.

Thanks for any guidance.

On the top of the gimbal, riight next to the post, is an adjustment for the insert at the top. It's the one with four slots in it, back that off and the insert can now slide. Once you get in on the post, snug the ring back down, slide the gimbal up before tightining the ring as I belive there is a taper in there that snugs the insert to the post. Thanks for you advise in the other post. Nick

sometimes the plastic insert slips down. If this is the case just use a small screw driver to hold it in position (at the top) while it is slid onto the post.
