Shooting self-nocked arrows

Hi folks,
Just taken delivery of my first ever set of self-nocked arrows.
They don't fit snuggly on any of my bow strings.
So, is it:
1) a matter of adding to the thickness of serving on the string? (This would be a pain because most of my arrows have nice clippy plastic nocks which would no longer fit on enlarged serving!)
Or
2) changing my string hand position such that I grip the nock of the arrow between my fingers? (And remembering to do this to avoid dry firing or other shooting line embarrassing moments!) 😐
Or
3) some other clever thing wot I ain't thought of...as usual.

Many thanks,
Best wishes
Wayne

You might try fitting the string onto the bow upside down and building a second nocking point on the string for the self nocks. Dental floss can build up the thickness by small amounts and is hard wearing. You may need to re serve the centre section to get enough serving in the right place for both set ups.

Both very good ideas - thank you. I think I'll start with the upside down string then see if I'm feeling wealthy enough to buy more strings.
Thanks folks.
All the best.
