Rene Pierre Leader loose handles
« on: May 16, 2017, 05:37:38 PM »
Howdy,

I have found a Rene Pierre Leader on ebay and it's nearly as good as the Bonzini of my youth... However some of the handles seems to be loose and it makes controlling the ball a little difficult.

Has anyone got any tip on how to tighten them? I didn't see any screws so I am not sure.

Thanks!

No idea but, did you try to screw the entire handle? I've seen RP bars and if I remember correctly the handle side has threads.

Just a thought.

I feel like a complete idiot now - it does need screwing but it's counter-clockwise.

But thanks, now I can play properly :D

French threaded: same as for bicycles.  People end up stripping cranks because of this.
