Getting T-stock to stay/not twist?

I have owned some that come loose easily, and others that stay put without a fuss. Current one comes loose quite easily. Suggestions for getting it to stay? I recall something about a wooden dowel but can't remember all the details. Or try a new collet?

How I do it so it stays and never moves on the CCI T-stock is this:

Push it to right around where you want the length of it to be, it need not be lined up perfectly yet

What you do then is push it a little in from that point but not too much

Then you tighten the ring and as you do you gently pull the T portion

Then you twist with some great resistance, try to line up the T-portion so that it is in-line with the center of the gun (think the center-line on the gun valve)

Give it a little tug and a push to make sure there is no slop

That's how I did it and it is rigid AF

Yeah I kinda pull while twisting the whole big t part to tighten further.

Your loose ones were probably worn but they take some fenangling to get satidfactory

Try flipping the little plastic piece inside around, I don't think the sides are symmetrical

Once you find your preferred length the wood dowel will keep it there.

I would lengthen to taste, turn the T 90 from desired position, hand tighten the thumb screw, then rotate the T the rest of the way. We did this with one and had zero issues. In fact, trying to loosen it caused the outer shaft to turn and unscrew from the tapered end. This was ideal for removing it for storage without having to remove the screws.

That is exactly what I do and I have no issues at all.
