Default Re: Replacing a reel seat/uplocking hardware

The first thing that I'd try is a little candle wax on the threads to see if it was possible to tighten up the ring without torquing it out of position.
(Just as if you were waxing a tent zipper)

Other wise, if I understand this correctly, the top of the seat is indented into the cork grip ?
That would be a matter of replacing a single cork ring along with the seat.
Not nearly as simple as changing out just the seat, but it's not that big of a deal either.
