In constructing actuators for print wires used in a wire matrix printer the back end includes a backstop which is adjusted so that the movement of the wire is a very precise amount. Because of the constant pounding of the armature against the backstop, means must be provided to effectively secure the backstop so that it does not unscrew and thereby change the distance traveled by the wire.
