    I got my Treadbolt today and the antennae are loose and flop all over. If they were screwed on or something I'd know what to do, but there's a pin holding them on. Is there a good way to tighten them?

    glue them in one place? Find a way to remove the pen?

    Not helping much, but at least I tried

    The ones on my Tread Bolt were loose as hell as well.

    I dripped clear nail polish on the pin and let it seep down. After it dried the antennae became more snug.

    That's a good plan. I wonder if it's a degradation of the mold. The blaster pack on mine is kinda wobbly too.

    I tried using a pin punch on mine but couldn't push the pins any further in. Didn't want to push my luck with it and end up shattering the helmet entirely so I went with the clear nail polish.
