    When mine were new they were tricky to adjust, I think I pushed them together and then twisted before I could widen them for 120 film.

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    If it's new you won't need to soak it. Just use the force.

    But gentle force. Don't break it.

    Make sure you are twisting it clockwise. So, if the bottom ring is in your left hand, then your right hand is moving the top ring out to the right in a clockwise direction.

    If you are hurting your hands you are using more than enough force. The mechanism is only tabs in slots with small ridges across each slot that the tab must ride over to come loose. I'm sure you have done this already but have you tried turning it the opposite direction from what the directions say?

    Is there a such thing as 120mm?

    In a way, yes: 5" film (127mm)
