    So i got a penny now . Its smaller than the juliets but somehow it wont sit tight on my head. It feels like it will fall off anytime if i nod my head. The arms feels loose but the screws are already tight and i cant tighten it anymore. Is it normal?

    Not normal If nose bridge is tight. The arms have springs in them maybe worn I think

    are the spring hinges working ok? the arms should over-extend when opening then spring back in slightly....

    if the nose bridge is tight and the arms have tension its just the nature of the beast with the penny.those tiny little hinge springs are all you have to control tension

    Yeah Penny will never fit as tight as Juliet, because of the spring hinges. Can't tell if yours are weaker than normal or if it's just your head shape...

    yeah, I checked the arms again. Looks like the spring is weak and upon opening I cant feel any tension.
