I have recently become aware that Arca-Swiss has started to glue the clamp to their heads so the bolt cannot be unscrewed to remove the clamp
. This means that when you get your excellent Arca-Swiss head you still have to suffer with the poor original clamps rather than replacing it with a good one for example from Really Right Stuff, which was what "everyone" did before.
Does anyone know about any trick to remove the bolt? Has anyone done it? Like heating it with a soldering iron or something to melt the glue?
I just got a D4 and I'm considering to send it back if the clamp cannot be replaced.
