moving peep sight keeps moving

My peep sight keeps moving up and down. I had it served at Dick's. The peep sight has that rubber tubing. Is there anything I can do to keep it in place? not sure what else to do.

They are probably the worst peep available in my opinion for several reasons. And no disrespect intended here at all, but I'd have that removed and reinstalled at an archery shop.

Save yourself time, and headache, donít let Dickís touch your stuff. Autumn Sky, Jefferson Archery, or Macrotec. Get a different sight minus the rubber thing.

I used them for years. Replace the tuping every season and no problems. No rotating peep from string stretching.


OP, you probably(looks like) have too much and unequal distances from the serving to the peep. Easy to move the serving by wrapping a piece of paper towel around the serving and slide it closer/equidistant to your peep. I never had this problem using tubed peeps.


***that serving looks a little suspect/loose***

When I had one of those years (many) ago I served it with waxed dental floss --never came loose---and the green kind is minty fresh!

Yup, too loose. You need a few more wraps of serving on there to tighten it up.

And change that rubber often, with new tubing. If that snaps, it's going right in your eye. Ask me how I know...

Anything on the string slows the string down! The tubing is also notorious for breaking and whacking people in the eye. To each their own, if you like it keep it! But most professional shops will not encourage using them as the others have mentioned. A properly installed peep will not move!

And string stretch shouldn't cause a peep to turn either...

I've used them for years. Had many break(until I started changing them every season) and never caught one I the eye. They always broke at the peep. I am not using one at the moment though. The tubeless ones are a real pain re-establishing proper alignment every year as the string stretched. I ditched the Shooter's Choice this time around for a custom string from Jefferson. After the original shoot-in and rotation afterwards, it's held straight.
