You do need an allen wrench to adjust the length. Thus far I have never had to use it on the trail, as I set the length tightly before heading out - but it is one more piece of auxiliary gear to keep track of..
I wore mine again yesterday and the bar on my left foot moved out a bit. I brought them back to Adventure Outfitters and the sales person was great about adjusting them and really tightening them up for me. He was big dude so I don't think this will happen again.
I don't think the woman or myself have enough arm strength to really set .He told me I could use "lock tight" if it keeps happening,(the permanent kind), but he doubts that it will.
Highly recommend carrying the allen wrench.

...but I still really love them!
