Bogen / Manfrotto 482LCD Micro Ball Head with Flash Shoe Mount - No Lock Down?

I just purchased a Bogen / Manfrotto 482LCD Micro Ball Head with Flash Shoe Mount to use with my FireStore 60 FSC DTE Drive. It will lock down up & down , but it still swivels side to side. Not good for running and gunning with my A1. It pulls on all the cables and turns so I can't see it if I move to fast. Is this Standard Operating Procedure??

Fixed!

Update :

The 1st one I received would not hold the drive (no lock off 360 pan) it would keep spinning. I returned it and the 2nd one did the same thing after a day or so.
FIX: Disassemble, carefully JB Weld flat head screw. Fixed!
