Just noticed this, but when I have the TT685F attached to the camera hot shoe, the flash is wobbly even if I tighten the flash hot shoe ring unreasonably tight. It seems loose enough that I could remove the flash, but after using moderate strength it seems like it will not come out.

That being said, the wobbliness is noticeable when moving the camera around and generally does not feel very sturdy. Is this normal behaviour?

Here is a video of the wobble: https://streamable.com/9lr2jz

The foot of the TT685 has a small pin which extends when you lock the strobe onto the hotshoe. This goes into a hole in the hotshoe. It looks like this isn't engaging in your case. Can you check that the pin is extending and that the hole in the hotshoe isn't blocked?
