Take them apart.. one side has threads for the bolt that holds them together, and the other side doesn't have threads. take an open end socket and tighten that bolt so that the shears feel tight, but not too tight. Then without moving the bolt, thread on the nut and with one hand on the wrench that is holding the bolt, take another wrench and crank down on the nut so that the nut compresses against the side of the shear. if you move that bolt at all, you will throw off the tuning you just did.
