I have a beautiful Fish Tales with one issue I can't figure out. The lockdown bar doesn't latch. The notches in the bar tabs never get "deep enough" to get caught by the receiver.

How to I properly adjust this? Brass screws don't do it.

Quoted from Bryan_Kelly:

In the first couple of pics....your lock down bar receiver appears to be mounted way too low. Did you or someone recently replace it?

They didn't. I'll see if there's some play in there.

Quoted from High_End_Pins:

This is the wrong lockbar receiver for Fish tales
You have one on there with the spring load offset arm and it has smaller mounting holes and less adjustment than the correct non spring loaded straight arm earlier version.

Thanks high_end_pins . Can you point me to the correct one at Marco or PBL?

Quoted from High_End_Pins:

This is the correct one
Get it from Mantis amusements because I am not sure others are selling the correct part.
It isn’t only the arm part that makes it correct it is the location and size of these holes.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Thank you. Mantis told me this is the one to get.
