Ap,

If you are not comfortable with a vice, perhaps a camera shop can help out - or send it to Nikon to tighten. Or even Cori Suddarth.

Sent it to Nikon Germany, and they did an excellent job on it.

Hi,

I recently sent my EDG 8x32 for servicing; there were three defects:
1. The bridge was too loose. (the classic)
2. The rubber coating on the focus roller came off.
3. Diopter compensation moved when focusing.
It took 11 days ... shipping, repair, return shipping then the binocular were back in perfect condition!
Zeiss, Swarovski and Leica do not make that better or faster.
So a praise from me to Nikon.:t:

In many of these hinge adjustments, one of the "holes" conceals a locking grub screw (allen headed or slotted) which has to be backed off first in order to enable the adjusting nut to be turned. Once the tension is right, re-tighten the locking grub screw.

Unfortunately that is not the case for the HG/LX.
