Alright so the tips are in and honestly it was a big pain in the *** to adjust.
Off the bat you’ll need to tighten the clamps all the way and that still was a bit loose for me as they all shifted when I did a test run. I then took them all out and bent in the tips that meet when clamped to get it even tighter and a tighter fit with one of the ends providing leverage. You’ll need to really push them in and I used a rubber mallet to knock them into the length and position I wanted. As mentioned before, the fitment is 90% and if you are OCD then it might not look good to you. Here are some pics of the finished results.
