kuryakyn passanger armrest

I have the kuryakyn passanger armrests. The swing out gets loose shortly after I tighten the two adjustment nuts. Anyone have this same problem? Any suggestions o a solution?

I don't know anything about them but bolts that loosen sounds like caplock nuts are needed.
Hope that helps!

I have them also and when I first put them on, they did the same thing. (Getting Loose on one of the arms) Anyway, As I remember, I think that I just tightened the one arm up a few times till it finally stayed. I remember having to do that several different times.

Blue locktight is your friend.
