OAT Probe Often Loose?

It's kinda quiet here since my starter problem in Detroit, so I have another. My OAT probe(stem) seems like it's loosening up all the time, especially when I touch/bump it while putting my cover on. I was snugging it up today but had some visitors & never got a chance to look it over well, or take apart.

Is there something one can do besides just re-tightening it? Would some semi permanent loc-tite do any good? It's a rather small issue but I have to have it fall off in flight someday.
