    Check the Radicons section on this site for more info, but a little clear nail polish on the ball joint (allow it to dry) will usually make the ball joint a little thicker to keep it on.

    that would be helpfull for it if that were the problem. the socket is too thick to go on the joint.
    and i cant exchange it, it was the last one.
    thanks for the help- guys, but i guess ill just go and get my money back. sorry for wasting your time.
    mod, delete this thread please

    Mine had the same problem. The socket in the head was not molded correctly to allow the ball joint to sit deep enough in the socket. I went a little unconventional on the fix.

    I found a screw that had a rounded head that would fit in the socket, scratched up the screw head so it was basically a little rounded file. Then with a pair of needle nose pliers (or you can use anything that will hold the screw tight enough) I inserted the screw head into the socket, and rotated the head around the screw head for a bit. That sanded down the inside of the socket to allow the ball joint to sit deeper. It NEVER pops off now.

    I couldn't find a replacement at the time due to it being brand new and scarce so, did what I could with what I had.:thumbs2:
