I have the same droop issues, I was thinking i misplaced some washers or some other tightening parts from the original package. For now i just keep tightening every time it droops but its no fun having to do this again and again after having got my projector professionally calibrated recently frown.gif

If you go back through this thread, you can find the following post that I made several months ago:

I am sorry to hear that you are having this problem. We would be happy to send you a set of lock washers that will correct the issue. We have only heard this complaint a very few times over the years, but understand that this is causing you (and the others that have posted here) frustration. We apologize for that frustration. For anyone experiencing this issue, please contact Panamorph at 719-266-2680 or sales@panamorph.com and we will be happy to send out a set of lock washers to correct it. We are also including a set of lock washers on all UH480 systems going forward and also note that the DC1 design was engineered when it was released a couple of years ago with a locking pan head screw system for precise alignment.

Mine is doing it too now haha - glad future kits have lock washers.
Especially when volume is high, bass will vibrate lens loose and it will droop.
Good on you for fixing the problem Panamorph.
