Steve, you probably have the right idea, but maybe you’re putting the screws in backwards? From page 14 of the manual:

Here’s a link to the manual if you need it:

Building on Blue's comment. Feed the screws in from the handle end of the the clamp in to the threaded end of the clamp and tighten the screws.
Pictures of my 15" with the split shaft. Hoping the pics help.
