Default DX8 loost switches

Surprise... a spectrum where the switch bezels come loose, then the switches flop all around... well, not quite flop... but DAMN!
So:
1) Does anyone use Loctite, or an o-ring under the bezel, or any other fix? (other than buying brand x bezels)
2) Spektrum... will you ship me a tool? This is not isolated to me...
3) If you won't send me a tool.... how much extra money would I have to pay to get a transmitter WITHOUT switches that come loose?

Esprit models sells a tool called a beauty nut wrench.

I wouldn't use locktite.

No but you have to change the oil and brake pads once in a while

Yup, but my door handles don't fall off.
