I was tearing it up in some 25+ kt wind when my mainsheet attachment snapped. Removing the parts was easy, but I can't figure out how to tighten the bolts on the mainsheet attachment to the lower block. It seems impossible to hold a wrench on both bolts as they want to slide into holes on the lower block. I currently have the locknut even with the bolt, but I don't know if that is secure enough for serious wind.

Ideas? Anyone?

Wedge a screw driver in there to hold the one inside the block.
