So many times I'll open a cabinet door and find that the knob is loose, so I get my screwdriver and tighten it. Then I go to a different cabinet door and find that knob loose. I might as well carry a screw driver with me all day! Is there a product that would keep the knobs tight? A glue? What is best? Thanks, Joe
If your knobs are plastic, then the silicone will work and you probabally have it on hand. I just "assumed" they were metal. There are several types of locktite here , that is if my link works, that will work on just about any surface.

I love loctite. You want to give yourself a treat get a bottle of Loctite 404 (little yellow bottle). Don't fall over from the price. I think it is $25 for two onces. Keep it in the refrigerator. That being said in this application I would dip the screw in Gorilla wood glue. Then retighten it.

Loctite 222 to be specific(purple in color). It costs about $6.00 for a 6 ml tube. It's a low strength product meant for machine screws less than 1/4" in diameter. There are several other Loctite products that will work but may be permanent. The more common 242 (light blue in color) is meant for nuts and bolts 1/4" and larger. When used on smaller bolts the bolts may break before the Loctite comes loose.
Stay away from the 271 high strength product (red in color). Just a note of warning. There are several other Loctite products that are purple in color. Make sure you get the 222. There is also a product number 22221 that is purple but it is a high strength product.
