when i was trying to adjust the eight of my pickup on my sg i got it to just the right height, but, if i tilt the guitar on its side, the screw comes out above the pickguard as if it is loose and so does the pickup, so how do i keep it at one height without this happening? Thanks much appreciated.
I think you're missing a spring for the screw. Try picking the pick-up up and see how far it will lift, without much effort. And I'm pretty sure you can get springs at you're local guitar store.
i have springs, but maybe their just bending all up at the bottom how would i fix that?
you could : one get longer screws and\or clip the springs shorter with a pair of dikes(snicker) {wire clippers}
