same here.. what you do is push it all the way down, let off (so it stays down momentarily) then push it down again to release it, then you can pump it however needed to make it stop. If you push it again to release you can push different amounts of pressure on it as needed without it locking into place. It actually works better because you don't have to keep one hand on the release all the time..
