It can be common for the tension knob to be stiff from the factory. To loosen:
- Install the bipod on your unloaded rifle
- Turn upside down or rest on buttstock with muzzle up
- Deploy the bipod legs in the 90 degree position
- With both hands on each leg, twist to work the Pan feature side to side
After use, it should start to loosen up. If stiffness is still unsatisfactory, Contact Us.
