The ferrule is one of the most important pieces of equipment at your reception. Without these then you would not be able to assemble a DIY draped backdrop for your wedding. These have to be attached tight, or the upright might wobble when attached. Hand-tight works the best; if they are too tight then use a hammer and lightly tap the ferrule to try and help loosen the grip.
Another important consideration is attaching your ferrule the right way. When screwing this accessory into your base plate make sure the screw starts from the countersunk area. This way when it is tight the bottom is fully flat and does not teeter-totter. You can also use multiple ferrules on the same upright. This way you have more than one upright coming up from the same base. This is typically done around corners, tight spaces, and ceiling heights that need transitions.
