Step 5

Tighten the M6 clamping bolts of the side-plates, but not too firm.

Do this with care. ( Here in Holland we have this proverb that says “stuck is stuck”)

The clamping system of the side-plates is designed in such a way that you only need to tighten the M6 clamping bolts with not too much force.

Slightly tightening the clamping bolts is more than enough to secure the mount rigidly.

Tip: put the mount approximately at the angle you need before tightening the M6 clamping bolts from the side plates
