Swix "Just Click" very hard to activate, noisy...?

Postby JeffOYB » Mon Jan 12, 2015 9:20 am

My Swix Just Click grips are very hard to activate and noisy. I replaced one last season. I don't know which one. Both can be hard to press at times. One always is VERY hard to get it to release. Seems like maybe there's a very subtle knack but I haven't figured it yet. If I press, nothing happens. If I press REALLY hard, nothing happens. But if I fiddle and fiddle then after 15-20 sec's of monkeybusiness it'll finally release in some way that I can't repeat.

And then... they're noisy. Make a loose-part sound with each pole plant. I'm going to test putting a piece a duct tape across the top. My hunch is that will "fix" it. Lame.

One of my Swix "Just Click" handles broke the first time I used it. Here's the thread in this same area of this forum.

Tried it an hour ago -- a pain.

Tried em just now -- they clicked and worked fine.

Whew...

Gotta be a knack in there.

Yeah, saw that. I see they have a spring. Doubt mine is broken but something is goofy.
