Tightening SUIT to mount

Got my L1A1 back from the gunplumber last week. Needlessly to say it looks amazing.

Whilst it was there, I acquired a SUIT scope and top cover and put them on once I got it back. I’ve put about 200 rounds through with the SUIT on without issue. The groups then went a bit wayward and, eventually, the scope flew off the mount and gave me a nice bruise on the forehead. Trouble is, even though it still locks into place fine, I can pop it off with a light tap. Is there any way to tighten this? Have the springs failed?

Thanks!

On closer inspection, I see whatís going wrong. The bar, at the base of the spring on the sight, thatís meant to lock on the hook of the base, is just resting on the head of the hook, rather than the pit. Any idea how to fix this?

Pull the latch all the way up to relieve tension on the spring clip and re-mount. When the latch is pulled all the way up to 90 degrees, you push the SUIT down and the spring clip will catch the foot and then when you push the latch down it will catch the hook/foot on the T-Bar. HTH
