Re: Rigid vang seized

It may also be jammed: the sleeves enclosing the tackle (the "rigid" part) may have gotten overextended, so they're not sliding in & out exactly parallel, the way they're supposed to. Ours does this on occasion. A gentle tap in the right direction gets them back in line so that they telescope again.
