    I have the Green Blob QD Atlas knock off ($40), and ended up putting a 5/16″ lock washer inside the area inside the cavity under the knurled knob used to tighten the assembly. Fits perfectly and works great. No more loosening all the time. If I swivel it back and forth ten times will it come loose? Yes. But only comes a little loose when intentionally trying to make it come loose. I’ve seen videos where someone used a few O-rings in the same area but that didn’t work for me.

    Thanks for sharing the lock washer tip! 
    The O-ring method didn’t work out for me either.

If mine ever comes loose I’ll try the lock washer trick with the loc tite but so far it has been staying tight.

    The lock washer trick sounds like it would be a solid solution. And, I’ve got to give it to the GB version on how little play there was with the legs extended. 
    I’ve got 2 more Atlas comparison videos coming out in the next few weeks. Stay tuned!
