Lights come loose

    I have a SnoPro3000 and the headlights need to be aimed after about 2-3 days of use. I am afraid to tighten too much as the housings are plastic, but this gets annoying, with the lights pointing down in front of the plow instead of down the road.
    Does anyone else have this problem? If so, short of readjusting them, what solution did you come up with?
    Thanks

    I figured that was the only solution, but I am afraid of breaking the plastic case by tightening them to tight.

    I think I will wait until spring and put some muscle to them, that way if they break I will have time to replace them.
    Thanks

    tighten them to just before they strip, then stop. ;)

    Seriously, you can get them pretty darn tight.
    Make sure you don't try to move them (aim them) when they are tight, then they loosen up again.

    Crank 'em down.
