My gear knob is quite loose, as in its easy to rotate it.

When I tried to tighten up it starts to pull on the gaiter which isn't ideal.

Is there a knack to it?

Yes. Disconnect the gaiter from the knob by pulling down on the gaiter. It is easier to use a trim tool between the gaiter collar and the knob and lever them apart. All will become clear once you have 'dropped' it.

I got an aftermarket one when I had the 8G and it was also not in the right position when fully tightened. I fixed it by stuffing some paper in and then tightened it so that the gear positions on the Gear Knob were in the right location.

The 10G one seems like it has a tapered hole as it becomes really stiff before it 'bottoms out'.
