    Question Module screw loose

    One of the screws on the lower cam module keeps geting loose. I've managed to stay on top of it but I'm worried that while out in the great outdoors, the screw might fall off and well... I'm not looking for that small of a screw in the woods!

    So, any suggestions? Some at the local archery club have recomended using a medium strenght glue.

    Thanks!

    I was told to use the blue lock tight, not the red! My rytera alien x screw mods kept coming loose so I was told to use that, it helped me. I hope it helps you.

    Default Module screw loose

    Like others I've used string wax and had success.

    One thing I didn't like about the mods screws was the small allen hole. Quite a few times I did away the the Martin mod screws and used the large allen hole Pearson mod screws.

    I use the blue loctite, too. It actually comes in a red tube and is #242. I don't have the tube. Mine is in a 1.69 fl oz bottle which will last forever.

    Thanks for the replies gents. I'll start with the string wax and move up to the loctite if that fails.

    cheers!
