The only way the adjustment needle can shoot out is if it is unscrewed all the way. Dan, if you didn't unscrew the knob, someone else did. There is no reason to unscrew the knob. The "full off" position of the low speed adjustment is 14 clicks out from full stiff. Again, this is covered in the instruction book.
I hear of a few problems but most all of them are due to someone not having the damper installed correctly or not knowing how to use the unit properly. I have seen a shaft seal leak but I've never seen a sweep adjuster leak. It is a rubber seal so I wouldn't doubt it.
For as many Scotts dampers as there are out there, they are *very* durable and trouble free units. I have heard nothing but good about the GPR but I don't know about their adjustability. Do they have individual low and high speed adjustments?
