see those holes on the thing? are you not able to loosen the bolt slip a needlenose in them and rotate the assembly? rotate it as far as it will go then put a one-penny nail into the hole that appears there, spring-loading it, as it were~

he's got a fancy home-made triangluar t-bar---but a one penny nail will do~ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPDONizQ3Bs
