Hey all,

I've got a Funhouse machine that is in working order, but one of the screws in the side of Rudy's head keeps slowly unscrewing itself during play. If I don't open the glass and tighten the screw it will fall out after 15-20 games.

Just wondering if anyone has encountered a similar problem and what people think would work to keep the screw in place. I had thought maybe loctite, but I gather that stuff eats plastic, so I guess that's a no go. Maybe crazy glue?

A Star Washer may work.

I put blue loctite on the threads and it has been solid.

A tiny drop does it, dont glop it all over the playfield and plastic.

I ended up using blue loctite and it has worked great. Thanks all.
