Ejector rod backs out

I had to take a Model 19 down all the way and reassembled. Works fine now that I got all the crud out of it. Used the ejector rod tool from Brownellsto unscrew the rod (rather than vise grips -- don't have a bench vise yet) and put it back on with same to the point of max tight without a cheater. 75 rounds later the ejector rod has come loose and is backing out slightly, requiring a little finagle to get the cylinder out.

Okay. I have heard some well intentioned folks say Loc-tite is the solution and others who run in horror at the mention of such. What is the best way to make sure that the ejector rod will stay where I want it but still let it be removable when I need it out.

All opinions will be greatly appreciated.

Use a leather pad so the knurling won't get marred. Load the chambers with empty brass. Grasp the rod with small channel lock pliers well behind the end to keep from crushing the pin hole. Grasp the cylinder firmly. Tighten well.
