Loom Too Tight

by Rebecca
(ca)

I have been using a long rectangular loom and the middle of the loom keeps getting pulled really tight to where the longer I knit, the harder it becomes to continue knitting. The stitches in the middle are extremely tight compared to the stretchier knit on the ends. I have taken it a part and tried lower tension but the two sides of the loom are still pulling together. Is there anything I can do? Any info will help!
