The screws that attach the the tank addapter keep coming loose and i have to tighten them after every game.

Is ther something i can do to keep the screws tight? maybe diffrent types of screw or a screw kit or something?

Simple, just apply a small amount of loctite and tighten them like normal. make sure its on the particular threads that are in the nut when tightened. Or use teflon tape, or just tighten them more. Its not easy to overtighten and strip the threads because the nut and bolt are both steel. But be carefull not to strip the bolt head.

Why use Loctite, when you can simply replace the bolts, theyre readily available at any hardware store for less than 2 bucks for both.

You can do either, but make sure you use the blue locktite (low strength)
