Oh great! Glad this worked out for you! He warned me it would take about a month when I bought mine (and it did) but said if others bought soon; they wouldnt have to wait. Your explanation clarified the "why". :-)
After I received mine, I was so pleased with his help & the locks, I warned him I posted to FR forum & another (A-Frame) forum & be ready to order more!
