BD Cobra Screw Tightness?

Recommended Posts

No climbing experience here, but I have $$$$ tools!:

 

I got my cobras in from the factory, and the screws were pretty much impossible to turn with the included wrench. After stripping them a bit, I put the cobras in a vice and got a real wrench out and took out the screws.

 

I then greased the threads and reinserted to a high tightness but still looser.

 

Anyone can comment on the factory tightness and if I did anything wrong?

They come too tight from the factory. loosen them at home and be sure to re-tighten your picks as necessary in the field.

Mine came the same way. I had to put a pipe on the end of a wrench for leverage to undo mine! I wonder if this is some sort of a liability thing.?.?

Ice hopper you are weak, you are not worthy of Cobras, you must be one with the tool.

Put the wrench on at a shallow angle relative to the pick and give it a good thump on some solid like a rock or yer partner's head. That will typically loosen the bolt up.

Chinese dudes that don't climb with a air powered wrench is the problem. But he is right "you are weak' just for asking :)
