    That's what I was thinking, I tried to see if I could force them outwards... as a mear mortal I did not have the strength and that's when I started to think something was not right.... but the weird part all 4 are like this so that's the part that had me second guess myself

(About 1/4inch off or so)

    Sorry about the issue, I wish the U-Bolts were more precise when they are made, but this the quality that I get.

    What I do is hold the U-Bolt by one of the threads in my hand and hammer the round part into something solid, like concrete or a good rock. Do this 2 - 3 times and it should open right up, careful not to over shoot the distance. If you happen to have something that can hold the U-Bolt with out damaging the threads, like a vise, a little bit of leverage goes a long way.

    For me this is something I've grown up around and is normal. However it seems that I need to look into getting U-Bolts that are more precise.

    Whatever the case, I'll work with you to get it figured out.
