I have a 1990s Freud plunge in my table and always set the bit by raising it to minimize backlash issues, then lock it. I also use a Wixey digital height gauge which is an awesome accessory.
I d assume the Triton has some backlash like all brands due, so suggest setting the height by always turning one direction (raising the bit makes sense because the router weight on the threads should minimize play), then lock it.
If the threads move while routing, it shouldn t be an issue with the mechanism locked.

I was wondering about this. I have it in my router, but it’s not exactly expensive. I’m a bit surprised the Triton has this issue as well. As with everyone else, I just make sure that I lower down to the desired height, and I have no issues after that.
