Anyone know of a good way to stop kitchen knobs from coming loose, and spinning, on cabinet doors? I was thinking about thread lock….but is there any other way?

I use very thin (very thin) rubber washers behind the knobs and the drawer face. You might also be able to put a drop of superglue on the threads, but I don’t know how permanent that would be… never tried it.

Blue (non permanent lock-tite) thread lock would work great.

When I was in the Navy (many years ago), we would use cheap, red enamel nail polish to hold small screws in place. Works like the loc-tite, but we could find it in any port we hit.

Lock washers would probably work for you too.
