I really like how the nock works because its so quick and easy to tension the LE. But I don't trust the clove hitch or any other knot to hold. Mine came tied in clove hitches but each side was tensioned dramatically differently, so I had to re tie them anyway. I got them tensioned evenly, tied them off with the proper clove hitch and then lightly covered the knot with a little CA. Didn't make a mess, looks nice and there no way its ever coming undone.
What is CA? Is everyone doing this or are most knots holding on their own? Thanks!
I'm pretty sure I'm the only one using this approach. You have to be really careful not to ruin the nock. Also, a spray on accelerator ( like ZIP Kicker) provides an instant cure, keeping the glue from going anywhere. But if you're not careful with that, the force of the spray will actually blow the glue all around and then it instantly cures wherever it ends up.
I use CA extensively in other applications (designing and scratch building RC aircraft) and knew I could get the results I wanted. My nocks are for sure not going anywhere, but I don't recommend this approach unless you have some experience with this glue and are willing to replace the attachment line if needed.
