When I install v-brake pads/holders the assembly wants to turn when I tighten it.
I get the pad aligned properly, holding it to the rim, but when I tighten it, it often spins slightly out of alignment; enough to have to readjust it. Am I using too much force to the bolt? Well, if I apply any less force the pad simply doesn't stay in place - it falls down once I let go of it. In other words, the force necessary to tighten the pad is sufficient to spin it, even when I try to hold everything in place.
What I've done:
I get the pad aligned and hold it in place against the rim by pulling on the brake lever. The free hand tightens the assembly. I have to apply an awful lot of force to the brake lever though.
Am I doing something wrong? Have others had this problem? Is there a better way to do it?
