Yeah, with the TPC removed you screw in the nylon set screw till it just meets the height of the inside threads of the bolt, and then you thread in the TPC. The threads of the TPC then cut into the nylon set screw, which locks it in place and prevent it from backing out/moving.

The main issue here is if you are constantly adjusting the TPC, then the nylon set screw gets worn/chewed and doesn't perform as it should. It's an inherent flaw of this design, and I believe one of the reasons the o-ring was added to the TPC. I don't think most players realize who loose their TPCs become after a while which can result in erratic performance.

The nylon set screw needs to be checked and replaced more often than you think, but you shouldn't be screwing and unscrewing it with the TPC in place. That just wears it out quicker.

Not that any of this has to do with how rare a left handed Phantom is...
