Yes, that is a tricky one. Screw adjuster in as far as it goes then, even though there is special tool design for this I've always managed with a big flat blade screwdriver. Insert the loop on the shank, place the blade opposite side of the post and then just push on handle.

Don't forget to lubricate backplate!!!
