Default How to tighten flybar shaft on AXE CP?

I had a mishap when my screw came off the grip that holds the bearings in. It exploded in mid air. I have it all together now and I can't get the flybar shaft to tighten up so I can level the paddles. What am I doing wrong or what part am I missing?

They look like Wheel Collars. Small metal donut with a hex screw in one side.

I've had the same problem to find out the flybar carrier has 2 ears that pretrude out so that the wheel collars can pinch the rod. When they break off the whole assembly will rotate.

Time for a new flybar carrier.

Or you can glue it but it won't last long

I had to replace my flybar carrier too. I was surprised to find I really had to crank down on the collars to get the flybar tight enough to not rotate in the carrier.
