Mine has shot loose with blue Loc-tite and red Loc-tite.

Is there anyway to keep this thing tight short of welding it ?

I went and got a cap head screw, same thread size.
I had to enlarge the opening a little so the cap head screw could be counter sunk properly.
The cap head let me use a larger allen wrench so I could put more torque on the screw, with blue loctite, never had a problem.
Roll pin also sounds like a good idea

I know what you mean by being able to get more torque on the screw. You really cant tighten it much with the little bitty allen wrench it takes.

I may try the larger head screw, you dont happen to remember the size and thread pitch for it do you?

Thanks
