    Yes, I believe I do. It has to do with the thin, metal bar that that the locking lever (light switch knob) screws into. I have the same problem with my double actions. Mine are several years old and apparently did not wear evenly or something. The cylindrical metal bar on clamp is cut/worn slightly different shorter than on the other, although both bars are the same in length. There's a little gap in the bar, the size/length of this gap is the difference. Don't remember if the shorter or longer gap causes the problems, but one thing's for sure, one feels like you're pushing the locking lever knob it into place, the other seems to 'snap' into place. The 'snap' response is the right one. It's both easier and provides a positive locking sensation, and results in less drawback of the two.

    Over time, these metal bars/pins wear out, and should be sent in for replacement/reconditioning from Laserfibre every three years under warranty as I am having done now.

    Hope this helps. I found this all out by taking my clamps completely apart, and trial and error.
