    Quick question...just picked up a like new P3A from someone. I wanted to double check the thumb screw for the tablet mount to make sure it was tight. However, no matter which way I turn it, it just keeps spinning and never gets tight or loose. Is there a nut inside the controller that I need to mess with, or am I missing something? Thanks.

    Not as far as I know. It should be tight to stop the phone / tablet from wobbling about.

    Had the same problem. Look on line and you'll find a very nice metal one. Can't remember who I got it from. Maybe Amazon. Ones is few colors and works great.

    I figured it out. Apparently in their quest to tighten it down, they broke the threaded part off from the thumbscrew. I was able to get it apart, so I'll just spring for the Inspire mount and call it done. Thanks everyone.
