You are here: Home | Service | FAQ | Nut M30 of the GTS is stuck – The GTS screw in the tree turns out!

Problem: After mounting the GTS screw in the tree, the nut has seized and can no longer be loosened → the GTS screw also turns out of the tree & you cannot push your accessories onto the shaft!

What could be the reason for the nut jamming?

  • No lubricant applied to nut during assembly
  • Nut seized up after a long time (similar to wheel nuts on cars)
  • No PU glue in the tree during assembly (GTS sticks better in the tree)
  • GTS Screw is too loose (possibly worn out hole, inadequate pre-drilling)

 

Solution to the problem – this is how you loosen the nut from the GTS bolt:

  • Spray the joint with spray oil (WD40) and jerk it firmly against the nut.
  • If this does not work and the screw continues to turn: hold the shaft of the screw against the nut with another tool (large pipe wrench, possibly with a rubber pad to improve the grip).

 

Creative solutions:

  • Drill into the shaft outside the support with a metal drill or model it with a flex to have a better gripping surface for the pipe wrench (the spot can be covered later with Distance Rings).
  • Question yourself: Is it absolutely necessary to open the nut? Maybe make your own Distance Rings from high-strength plastic to clamp over it.
