If they take a bit of pressure to flip them up, then that is ok.
I re-used the friction spacer from the stock pegs. you physically have to fold them up and down. No amount of vibes will make them move.....which is good on an solid mount Sportster.

Given my track record I am sure that I can find some other way to severely injure myself though.
