    Welcome to the forum.

    In advance I'm going to say I'm sorry for your loss.

    I wish you the best of luck in getting your X-Squared returned to you.

    The best hint would have been joining here first prior to sending them anywhere to ask for the advice.

    Sorry to say but there have been horror stories of these items getting "lost".

    I would say @THE X-MAN would have been you best bet for tightening.

    They will offer you 25% off a new pair.

    Do what you must to retrieve them.... Don't leave it to chance.

    And welcome to the forum.
