    Yep they can be tight to begin with.

    I have used a pair of poly grips to lightly hold the turret from moving, then using a coin turn the screw, should get it. Then just nip it up again, dont tighten too much.

    Mine was tight the first time I used it ...... Sure I've heard that some where before.... Any way, I think I did a similar trick using pliers and a coin

    No dramas here.. poly grips with masking tape on the jaws and a coin works a treat..
