Bent tab on extension tube.

Hey guys!
Just got delivered today macro extension tubes, suposedly to be branded Soligor, but nothing is written anywhere... they're used but overall in good condition. Set of three tubes - 13mm, 21mm and 31mm. Only thing is that on the biggest of them, on one of the adjusting tabs, is a very small dent. Probably it had fallen lightly on some edge or something. So I can't fit it onto the camera body. These are manual tubes, can't see any electric contacts on them neither. So i want to sand that tab a little bit, to be able to fit it on body, but am a bit afraid. Would it in any way impact or might it damage camera?
Thanks.

It's really small, tried to take pic of it, but couldn't see anything, especially that all the bayonet is black. The dent is really small, but still, i can't put it on the camera. I think i could if i pushed it harder, but even the owners manual says one should not do this.

You could always use the extension tubes to get a better shot of the dent on the ex...nevermind.

Ok, but not sure what your are referring to with "adjusting tab"?
