    Just bought a new Creed 3 days ago and picked up a stabilizer today. When I put it on it only screwed in half way and when I removed it I had some thread flaking off from the riser. Is there a fix for this or will I have to replace the bolt on the riser. Is this something that can be serviced under warranty? Any help would be great.Sucks to buy a 769.00 bow and have this issue. Not bashing sure im the only one.

    I did this to a new bow last year. I actually did it right there in the shop! Fortunately, the shop owner re tapped it with a die. All was right in the world in less than two minutes. So…take it to the shop and see what they can do. I learned that the bushing in the riser is aluminum, and the stud on the stabilizer is stainless steel. Steel wins every time. Go slow and be careful.

    That makes alot of sense you would think they would make the stud out of steel to avoid things like this. Probably something I did anyway. I will take it down to the shop later in the week and see what they can do. I appreciate the help wrkdvr

    Just a thought. Check the thread on the stabilizer to be sure it’s clean before you try to put it back on. I’d ‘clean’ the threads on both the insert and the stab before I would try to put the stab back on again.

    Don’t use my tap and die set much, but it sure comes in handy when needed.

    BlackDog for the win had some flaking about halfway through. I took a file to it and what do you know? Perfect fit again thanks alot buddy. I do feel like an idiot though. Im the type of person that can look at something and piece together everything that went wrong and why, but give me a wrench and im a 2 year old trying to put shapes in slot.
