    Default Problem with Tama hihat adjustrment bolt/screw

    I have a Tama Iron Cobra Hihat a few years old but I'm a recreational drummer (no band, play for fun now) and it doesn't get a lot of moving around, packing/unpacking. The allen head screw for adjusting the lower hat angle threads through two nylon threads with a nut held between them, the newer design. The problem is the nut that is supposed to "lock" the adjustment in place doesn't seem to help and the screw backs itself out from playing all the time. Other Tama golks that have this hihat any ideas why the darn thing won't lock? It's about 3 yrs old gear wise.

    I have an older Tama Road Pro stand - there is a captive nut on the allen screw held between the nylon threads (which appears to do nothing) but there is also a knurled locking mechanism which tightens the allen bolt and stops it backing off. I assumed that the tripod style Iron Cobra stand was essentially the same as the older Road Pro (but with additional adjustment on pre-tension/height of the footboard) - is yours missing a knurled adjuster?

    got no knurled well this pushes the lower hat upwards for your chip sound so the allen screw meets the lower hat. and yes the captive nut seems to be useless I expected it's supposed to tighten down at the bottom and lock the allen screw. FWIW

    I'm wondering if you're missing the knurled adjuster? Took a screenshot of the Iron cobra PDF. Does it look like yours? Thanks....
