    Isn't there a set screw on the side of the riser? From what I've been reading some do and some don't. Which is yours? If yours doesn't have one I would highly recommend that you drill and tap it for one. I would say just glue it, but then you'd have no adjustability.

    Default set screw

    yeah it has a set screw that doesnt stay tight....i can tell when it gets loose cause my arrows dont fly straight, i can see them wobble in flight

    So use some #242 Loctite on the set screw. This usually comes in a little red tube and it's color is actually blue.
