Screw it in tight,but not too much,or it will do the same thing again.
Epoxy is your best bet, you can even screw your screw in before it cures
and tighten it a bit more after it cures.
Loctite will not cure on plastics, wood or stainless steel so that is not an
option. You can get a primer for stainless applications. Also for gunwork
Loctite 222 (purple) is your product of choice.
