Sensitivity

The iPhone app shows three settings for the "Tap" sensitivity. It seems that the default value is "high". I had the same issue and fixed it by setting to "Low".

Yep

I agree - I thought about this later and think a piece of Gorilla tape over the hole before putting on the clamp would give better protection.
