    Default limb bolts

    noticed that the limb bolts which i'd marked at the 6 o' clock position are now at 5 o'clock.
    tightened them back to 6 o'clock and will be checking a bit more carefully from now

    any ideas about this?

    have a great weekend and happy shooting.

    I don't know how you marked it but maybe your limb bolt washer or cap is moving and not limb bolt!

    This ^^^^. They fit on the side that a quiver mounts. The size is 1/4x20 and 1/4" long is all you need. Don't know what hardware stores you might have, but a good one my have them. I know that Fastenal has them.

    Like Speedykills, it's rare for limb bolts to back off or tighten. Mark the head of the bolt, not the washer, to be sure. If the limb bolts are moving, then I's use the brass set screws.
