    Joystick Knob Falling Off

    I have this Invacare joystick which is a year old. The knob has fallen off twice in the past week. I don't understand why; I'm not doing anything unusual (20 years, 3 Invacare power wheelchairs without a problem). This style of knob has always worked well for me. Should I get the knob replaced? Is there a glue that would hold it without making it permanent (maybe Loctite Blue)?

    Pull the joystick off, wrap a piece of black electrical tape around the stem, push the joystick back on. Snug fit and in most cases, problem solved for less than a penny.
