I installed odyssey springfield brake. Adjusted one pad without problems, but the other one is giving me a headache. It keeps rotating when tightening it. Even tried to hold the pad with a wrench while tightening the screw(cant hold it with fingers), but then I just damage brake arms like I overtightened it(pad still not firmly in place). It gets the hold only in weird positions, far away from where it needs to be.

Btw, tried the simple solutions like switching the pads from left to right and switching the screws.

Anyone has any idea how to solve this?

Solved! Tried again holding it with wrench, and this time worked... sorry guys!

Were you missing a washer? That would make the nut bottom out before it's tight
