This is a great idea!

Question Fishing for answer

I remember reading some time ago where an article recommended using a piece of fishing line for this exact purpose. Curious of the thoughts on doing that in this location.

Nylon fishing line will crush into the thread slot and will act in the same manner as an elastic stop nut to wedge the screw in place; how long it actually retains the screw in a vibrating environment over time is uncertain.

I think this whole topic is a bit "overcooked" in an attempt to replicate the LP24693C296 screw retention method... a couple drops of blue thread locker will do the job well at a low cost, and easily replaced with each reinsertion of the screw.
