Correct. They are a stupid design. You have to use pliers to retighten them. You can loosen them with a flathead but the bolt is designed so it can only be turned counterclockwise with a flathead (stupid). It's the most infuriating simple thing I've ever seen. There is absolutely no reason for these retarded clamps. Whoever specified them ought to be shot.
