Why do they call it Secure button when the red button keeps falling out? Can I super glue this bad boy in place permanently? It would still work, right?

I have the original Secuributton. I dismantled it to get the part the button screws into and just glued it in. I did it that way to ensure I didn't glue parts together that needed to move.

My smaller arrow points work just fine. Conversely you can just buy a screw that is the same pitch and loctite it in place.

Red is the strongest, purple is for small and fine thread hardware. One could use clear nail polish in place of thread locker.

In some industrial situations on Spence Steam valves we pin-prick the bolts so they do not come apart after assembly.
