Yes, the best way to keep screws and nuts tight on firearm accessories such as scopes is to use Loctite Threadlocker Blue 242, see pictures above.
Apply a small amount to threaded area of the nut or screw that goes into the mount or ring. This particular product keeps most screws and nuts tight but is not permanent and you can still remove the accessory device such as a scope without damaging the screw, nut, device, or firearm. In some cases it may be beneficial to apply the Loctite to the backside of the screw slot, each type of device is different.
Important: Never tighten the screws or nuts to tight, they strip easily and you can damage the device, especially a scope. Also Loctite makes several products so make sure you buy the correct one I have listed.
