Neos clamps sliding after clamping

On my Neos 1000, I started noticing after I clamp, the clamps are sliding back 1-2” on the glide bars. I took them off, and noticed that where they contact the glide bars on all sides is shiny and smooth. Are they supposed to look like this or is there supposed to be an abrasive coating that allows it to grip the glide bar? Or is there some type of adjustment I need to do so they are tighter on the bar? Thanks in advance!

Sounds like you need to clean the bars and the area of the clamp that grabs the bar. Over time, the bars and clamps will pick up string residue which makes them slick. Use alcohol, clean throughly, let everything dry and see if that works. Try that before you invest in new clamps.

Good advice...I just gave them a good wipe down with alcohol and went through several cotton swabs that were black with all the residue that came off of them. I'll give it another shot and see if that did the trick, thanks!
