    The only time I have sent a post to GD is was due to the adhesive on that part coming loose. Wayne reset it and it never came off again. We have 6 of his posts and only one acted weird like that.

    I've had both of mine do that. Scrub things clean. Bust out the JB-Weld. Let sit a day or two. Bam. Both are working just fine, no trouble since.

    Go easy if you take this route. You need just enough epoxy to hold things. Don't want to get it inside and mess up the works.

    I put a thin bead just around all the edges of the outer bit, clamped it together and let it sit a couple days.

    Mines done this three times now, so after the last repair I put two small zipties at the top and bottom of the plate. They are small and black and you don't notice them un less you really look. If it has come loose I would not know it.

    I own two Gravitydroppers and this happened to my four year old one. I called Gravitydropper and was told to send it in and they would repair it at no cost to me. They fixed it free of charge, and shipped it back to me the next day after they received it. It's now six months later it's still going strong. They're awesome!
