I'm not really sure which rest you have.......is it like attached picture??
If so, that shows how it's position, but if that is the one, it's a cheap plastic rest like what came w/my son's Jaguar (older compound, not new recurve), and I would suggest saving yourself some grief and get another rest right away.
N.A.P. Centerest flipper is a simple rest that works really well for finger shooting and are durable.......probably find them for $25-30
