The locks should be able to turn without lifting. The lifting serves the function of a ratchet, should you have to use it. They may have been tighten more the typical for transportation, but the normal operation of the clamps is the turn the base lock WITHOUT lifting the handle.

Oh, and the tension mechanism shouldn't be "wiggly" while tensioning. If it is wiggly while locked out holding tension, then there is only a problem, IMO, if it wiggles along the direction of the string.
