This is the inside of the bottom of the clamp which rides along the glide bar, that is why it needs to be smooth and shiny. Otherwise it wont slide properly.
Anyone ever hear of a brand new clamp that is extremely difficult to move along glide bar because the metal on the clamp is not smooth and shiny? Any ideas here. Thanks
