Hi, could someone with an epic paddle help me with this please - pic attached shows the clamp for the paddle connection lever; i noticed theres a thread on the inside of the lever, but no screw there - i'm just wondering if there was and its fallen out?
i would be grateful if someone could check theirs and let me know :)
thanks
J.

Hard to tell…
It looks as though it's a plastic plug used to fill the two holes… two holes where some sort of tool or machine was used to clamp / hold the paddle at one point. I'd send you my "plugs" if I could take them off, but they are in there. On the other side of the coin, I really wouldn't worry about it… at least, that's my take on it from observing two of my paddles.

I happen to have a new one lying around, I still want to replace my old rotating thingy.

You are missing a small set screw that is ment as a security to keep the lever in place (although on my version the lever does not come of without the screw).
I took it out to show you. Have a look:

The screw is not just a security item, it is a vital part for the tension in clamping. The plastic lever is the main clamp opposing the Stainless steel bar nut on the opposite side, it makes the surface area large enough to not wear out the small hole the main clamping screw goes through.
