Shimano road pedal adjustment

edited March 2010 in Workshop
This may seem like a stupid question but, the adjustment control on the back of the pedal has a plus (+) and a minus (-). Am I right in asuming that turning it to the + makes it more difficult to unclip out of the pedal? I've been turning mine (105) in both directions and don't seem to notice much difference.

    no such thing as a stupid question, just stupid answers! yes + is tighter & harder to unclip, but like yourself I've never noticed a huge difference. I usually have mine on loosest setting just in case.
