lastly!!!!! the more you keep that base clamp in line with the direction of pull, the less it will want to pivot under tension (after tension is released from lockout). simple physics.
Ok,thanks for the advice.
I'll try to adjust it again and see if that works.

BTW do all swivel clamp bases do this after a while including the high end swivel clamps stringers(aka 1k+)?
