On my H17S, the screw that goes into the end cap of the spreader pole has let loose of the nut inside the spreader pole and the connection point of the upper and lower bridle wires. That point of connection is trying to migrate outside of the spreader pole (see picture).

How do I fix this? I took the screw out of the spreader bar cap but the cap doesn't easily come off. Do I just need to apply more force? Hacksaw?
However, I'm not sure that getting the cap off does any good since I need to the screw to go in through the cap and then into the point of connection of the bridle wires and then there is a nut that need to be secured. Doesn't seem like I can get at all of that even with the cap off?
