    if you read the instructions they will outline what to use, the different holes and screws are for different models

    Try using Lock Tite on the threads, you should not have a problem with them backing out on you.

    Try to align the caps so the screw hits the axle nut on a flat and use the blue locktite as suggested, shouldn't be a problem even with 1 screw.

    Well done Cavs1429, mine came with 4 stubby allen set screws that had threadlocker already on the threads...just put them in as Glider says so the screws are aligned with the flats and run them in. Funny, mine came with a sheet that showed the parts list; now I am a bit upset that I tossed the instructions, otherwise I would have scanned them and post it here as well. Oh well...:small3d015:
