Squeaky endpin foot
This is not a problem of my endpin rattling but rather the rubber foot at the bottom squeaking loudly when I shift the bass. The rubber foot that screws on is rubbing against the metal washer on the endpin and squeaking. I can tighten it but it becomes loose after several minutes of playing. Does anyone have a fix or can someone recommend a good replacement endpin shaft/foot that won't have this problem?

You could put a lock washer on. Most endpids will work with a 3/8" lock washer.

Baby powder; re-apply as needed!

Thanks - good ideas - I'll probably try the lock washer as I'm looking for a more permanent fix.

Note's from a friend on the subject:
Violin peg paste will tighten the screw on rubber tip
Teflon tape will also work. Use a speck of super glue on the tape
Simandl suggests using lard for this purpose in his method pt 3. If you would like to save money you could probably just use any rendered fat that you have around.

You could also put some loctite on the threads and tighten it down.

The only thing I don't like about loctite is that some of their formulas "creep" and could get up into the peg mechanism. I've used teflon tape. But thinking of violin peg paste... some of that stuff is just a solution of rosin, leaving me to wonder if a tiny lump of Pops pressed into the threads would do the trick.
