    Hey all, I recently bought a pair of Straight Jackets in excellent shape but the first thing I noticed was the arks are loose. Not from the black piece that hinges to the frames but from the ear piece to the black hinge piece. It looks like the ear piece snaps into the black hinge piece, is there any way to tighten this up? Thanks.

    Unfortunately there really isnt anything you can do. Were they new from a shop? Or used? If they have been disassembled and not put together right, that could cause it.

    Thanks for the reply. I bought them used. Owner said he only wore them a few times then switched to his other pair, I tend to believe him because they're immaculate. Do the arms disconnect from the hinge piece by pushing the tab looking thingy in? They're tight when I'm wearing them, just my OCD kicking in. Thanks again.
