    Woe indeed!
    I am sure I can but I was hoping to get one from a local shop to save on shipping and taxes.

    Peter,

    A 9.5 mm wrench will work fine on a 3/8" nut.

    That is what I planned to do this weekend. Can't wait for the handles to be repositioned.

    What I find incredible about TiLite's UniLock is that they appear to intentionally orient the handle like that. If you look closely at the hardware, you will probably see evidence that the nut and bolt used to set the orientation of the handle were originally in another hole.

    I have to admit the last time I had our tech "put it back where it should have been in the first place", we ended up changing it back. Turns out the veteran who received the chair wanted it sticking up like that so he could hang his keys on it.

    peter - everything here is metric too - i have quite a few imperial (sae) tools ive bought myself on holidays to the us... can you use an adjustable wrench? or otherwise use the slightly larger one, and tape over the nut with electrical tape (aka vinyl tape). it isnt the best solution, but it is possible. you should retighten the bolt often.

    SCI_OTR - What is the percentage of your clients using the Unilock set to push as compared to pull? Is there any advantage over the other?

    amyk - Thanks for the tip. Worse comes to worst, I will use an adjustable wrench but I am sure I can get imperial wrenches here. Just need to look harder.
