Yes.

Need to put the bow into a portable bow press.

Press the bow, to relax the bowstring.

Slide the peep sight higher up the bowstring,
until you have the peep sight directly in FRONT of your eyeball,
when the nock is touching the spot you want on the side of your face.


Now,
the string does have twists in it,
so when the PEEP is directly in FRONT of your eyeball,
the peep may not be facing the correct direction.


Might need to swap strands of string material.

Let's say you have a 20 strand string.

Pretend we can number each strand of the string.

Let's say we grab strands #1 through #10
and put this bundle on the left side of the peep sight.

Let's say we grab strands #11 through #20 and put this bundle
on the right side of the peep sight.


Temporarily tie the peep sight in,
and then fling 100 arrows.

Gotta fling 100 arrows to settle down the string strands
and get them all back to even pressure.


Now,
check to see if the peep sight is pointed straight ahead.


Let's say after 100 arrows,
the peep sight has settle down,
but the peep sight points a skosh over to the left.


This just means that we grabbed the wrong set of strands
on the left and right.


Maybe we need to grab strands #3 through #12
and put this bundle on the left side of the peep sight.


Maybe we need to grab strands #1, #2 and #13, #14, #15, #16, #17, #18, #19 and #20, and put this bundle on the right side of the peep sight.


When you adjust which strands you grab to make the left side bundle
on the peep sight, this changes the direction the peep sight points.

Twisting the string slightly may get where you want to be also. I use a loop and it also can be helpful for positioning the peep.
