Tapco Pro 19


Anyone ever had an issue with the brake staying open on its own? In the last 2 weeks mine just falls closed on its own. None of the joints seem loose.

There are a couple assist springs, one each end if I remember right . could be missing or stretched out. When I bought my Black Max new years ago it did not have them and would do the same thing, Put the springs on and it stays open now.

All you need to do is just snug each bolt at the pivot joint at the back just a 1/8 - 1/4 turn

Re: Tapco Pro 19


Yeah it was embarrassingly easy to adjust once I finally cleaned the brake out and found time to look at it.

This is one of the first things that have gone wrong that I really didn't even know about because I have one or two of the guys bend metal now and I didn't even know it was acting up till I used it to break some metal for my overhangs at my house.
