How to adjust the fittings
All probrake fittings are adjustable and rotatable (Even the pressed fittings).
Just fix the pressed area with a pliers or something similar and turn the fitting in the direction you need. This is not as easy as it sounds and you need a bit strain and maybe some additional tools.
PLEASE NOTE: If a pressed fitting turns really easy it is huge safety risk and may not be well pressed! Please report if this happens.
Always make sure you don't damage the fitting!
