    I have a 303 trap model with 4-way adjustable comb. I have seen people use washers for the height adjustment, to be able to set the adjustment consistently. Even if the comb loosens, you can still finish the station with the comb on the washers and tighten between stations.

    Is there a way to fix the sideways adjustment similarly? Or, do you just bear down on the hex screw and hope for the best?

    Danny- You could probably design and make some spacers to fit into the cast off/on grooves but I doubt this is necessary. I would also advise you not to "bear down on the hex screw". You can easily put enough pressure on the screw to damage it. I believe nuts and bolts should be firmly tightened and then given a little snug. You should never apply all of the pressure you can to these parts.

    Once you have it adjusted 1 drop of Locktite does the trip.
