Mine fell off a few months ago. I keep a pair of long nose pliers under my seat just in case I ever need to turn it to reserve.

IMO it's not worth the trouble. But you could put Liquid Nails or JB Weld on the threads and it should NEVER come off again.

Blue Loctite would be better than J B weld and Liquid nails. It would take a lot less to remove when needed. Never had a problem with this.

Purple Loctite (222 or 221) weakest, made for small hardware.
Blue Loctite (242), Medium strength, we use on 1/4 or larger bolts.
Red Loctite (262 or 272) High strength, if you never want to remove the screw ever again. actually yah i will come out..just neet to heat it too 500+F to get it off.

Or Green loctite (620) a retaining loctite used to help fit loose fit bearings, would work great holding on the knob on without a screw. and with a little heat (hotter then the motor) you can still remove without destroying the knob.

been working on Aircraft for about 17 years now...so loctite is a friend to me. Especially on a pusher prop aircraft...all fasteners seem to find its way to the prop.

gavineli,
I used the blue Loctite originally (knob fell off) and later on, had to take the knob off for easier access before doing a valve check. It came off easily and I re-installed it with another dab. Never has come loose but is real easy to remove when necessary.
