Dom, 
Sorry spell check renamed you.
I’m not at the boat, but still in Greece, so 
I’m working on someone to deliver the dose of boiling water.

Hello,
I had the same problem 2 years ago. I had managed to unlock it by pouring boiling water on the swivel. Unfortunately the solution is only temporary, if the reel is not used regularly it tends to harden because it is the rings which have swelled.
