Hummm…I’m sure that I’m putting them on tight. I’ll try the drop of oil and if they keep coming loose I’ll send Easton an email. I never considered the fact that both the new skewers could be defective.
Do the Easton skewers have a depth stop adjustment on the acorn nut?
I had a front skewer a few years back (do not recall brand, but certainly wasn’t Shimano) where there was a 3mm hex socket screw in the end of the acorn nut…by moving the screw out a turn or so, I could thread the QR rod deeper into the acorn nut. Was enough to make a marginally tight QR into a good, solidly engaging one.
Can’t find a good explanatory image after cursory Googling, sorry.
[ETA:] Of course, if the rod isn’t bottoming out in the acorn nut, this likely won’t help.
