: I did use epoxy and also teflon tape to protect the screw. I haven't been able to get to check it out closely but at a distance, it looks like it is holding. I hate to suggest it but dare I try to tighten the screw or just leave it alone?

It all depends on how strong/hard the epoxy is.

Will it be strong enough to maintain itself or will it crumble or crack?

Or it might spin inside there to loosen and never be able to re-tighten.

My experience is to just leave well enough alone on this type of fix.
