Tightening mount screws on teleconverters

Am I the only one who finds it necessary to tighten the screws on both sides of my teleconverters every week or so to prevent excess "play" in the contact of converter to lens or camera to converter?

This is primarily related to tripod shooting with 500mm f/4 + 1.4x converter on a99ii body.

I am wondering how others deal with this issue?  What screwdriver gives you maximum leverage on these tiny screws?  Is there any risk of overtightening and stripping the threads?  Would Loctite (blue) provide a more lasting solution?

Many thanks.
