Default Triton Plunge Lock lever not locking

I have a new Triton TRA001. I cannot get the plunge lock lever tight enough. As soon as I power the router on the bit sinks down. I took the lever handle off and used a wrench. The bolt is bottomed out and still the plunger moves up and down. Anyone else had this problem? I must be doing something wrong.

Tighten lever
loosen screw until you can rotate lever counter clockwise
tighten lever again
it should work properly
there is a limit on the lever's movement sometimes the screw loosens then the lever wobbles around out of position Its happened to me before
