Keep in mind Locktite is a brand name. Blue for any metal to metal. Red if you never want it to come apart. Try super glue(another brand name) for the plastic stuff.

Green Locktite has worked fine for me too. Use either blue or green.
Never use red, it will permanently lock the screws.

If the screws coming loose are threaded into plastic then try a little drop of CA (super glue). Locktite works best on metal to metal.

If using CA glue into plastic, make sure it starts to gum up a little before using it.
