All you’ll need a flat head screwdriver to perform the adjustment.
Unlock the brake of the vertical sliding collar by turning the break handle to the left and hold it in the unlocked position.
Loosen the L screw by executing a half turn counterclockwise with the flat head screwdriver.
Next, use the screwdriver to gently tighten the K screw by executing a half turn clockwise.
