This has come up before, and the likely reason that your Curt Roof Rack for Raised Side Rails # C18118 won't tighten is due to you possibly overtightening the screws.

It's fairly easy to do this is and when they are overtightened they'll break and you'll never be able to tighten them again.

The best thing you can do in this case is to replace the entire set as replacement bars / clamping mechanisms are not available separately.

If you're needing any other help or assistance with anything else feel free to reach back out and we'd be glad to take care of you.
