How do I just this #*%&# adjustable stem??Kristin

I have an Uno 90mm adj. stem. I can't budge the thing. There are two bolts on the side and one on top. I completely removed the top bolt and stop plate. And I removed one bolt from the side. The last bolt is a female threaded bolt that holds the other side bolt. Zero info on the packaging. I've tried turn the bolts in combination. They all move independantly so holding one doesn't seem to be the key. What's the trick??

Try tapping it with a rubber mallet.
Now, now do you really think violence will resolve anything?Kristin

:-) Perhaps it will! I tried that, I can only get it to move to -40 degrees, which isn't the direction is suposed to go--and isn't a valid adj. for that stem. I can't get it to move into a positive position at all. I think perhaps something is not right with this stem. Me thinks I'll go see the shop. Thanks for the tip.
