    Can't seem to keep the handle tight, no matter how much I tighten it, it still slips. Has anyone else had this problem? What did you do to fix it. I hate to take it back to the dealer for that.

    Try a small piece of rubber between the shaft and handle.

    It should have a small rubber piece between eh handle and shaft. It will be thin but just enough to give some grip.

    I don't recall seeing one, but I will look again. I have tighten it so much that it is starting to make the plastic deform. Do you think they will cover it if I can't get it tighten?
