Gen 3 V-Stream shield; knobs don't stay tight

Lovin' my Nat'l Cycle V-Stream shield, but minor annoyance: the knobs loosen up quite often. That didn't happen with the OEM or the Puig shields I used previously. I imagine lock washers are the solution (or eat more Wheaties), but I was just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this?

Installation Error

Yes, many of us 2015 owners, I will try and find the Post, FastEddie posted.The concave washer is missing on many, including my 2015, I purchased some from a place called Spae Naur. After installing, and 14,000 KM later, no problems.
Here is one of his posts, he describes as a spring washer that was missing, same for me.

And I thought I was the only one-and yes only with the National Cycle sport Tour shield no other windshields- including the National Cycle shorter Sport shield-so I put it where I wanted it and a drop of blue lock tight on each side-so far so good--oh I put a small drop of white paint on the adjuster knobs so I could tell if it moved..

Weird, right? I like the threadlocker idea; might do that or add a lock washer. Thanks.

Following-up, I installed some lock washers and the knobs haven't loosened a bit since.
