GoPro Hero 8 Flexing Mounting Fingers

The mounting fingers on my brand new hero 8 have give when mounted to genuine gopro mounts or any other mount with genuine and non genuine thumbscrews. The give only ends when I tighten the thumbscrews an unreasonable amount with a screwdriver. How can I fix this?

Not sure I understand. Are you saying that the screws require a screwdriver to tighten them into a locked position? Typically, just tightening using your fingers will secure the GoPro to the mounts.
