  2. I've used superglue, for the most part. That way if it needs to be replaced, I can just knock it off.

    A VERY small drop of superglue.

    Yeah I use a drop or two of yellow glue. I find that yellow glue releases more cleanly than superglue. Of course, yellow glue is not so useful if your nut is plastic or brass.
