Spheros SW 8000 bail assembly screw

I've got a Spheros 8000 that I vertical jig with and I have been noticing recently that every so often the screw (part# RD16243) on the bail assembly (the side opposite of the line roller) comes loose. I don't carry a screwdriver with me on my kayak, so I have had to use the tip of my knife to screw that screw back into place on numerous occasions. Thankfully I haven't lost the screw yet!

This cannot be normal! So my question is do I get a new screw for it or put a little lock-tite on the screw?

    I used Shimano's "contact us" feature on their website to forward my inquiry. Will post back when I get a response.
