I know if you over tighten them they will strip pretty easy. I am really careful when I tighten them and I have not had a problem.

I've heard that you don't hardly want to tighten then up much at all, just barely snug them up so you dont stress the threads. That makes it easier on the knuckle.

I have the Aluminum Knuckles and Aluminum 7* carriers and the work really well, and the fit and finish is great.
