Just put a dab of super glue on it and then keep moving the joint till the glue is dry. Do this a couple of times till the joint gets tight.
You'll be lucky if you're one of the few to find someone who can tolerate you.

If you use hot glue you can always pull it of if you mess up.

Hot glue isn't going to work well for this if it works at all.

just use a little bit of cheap dollar store super glue, just use a drop and keep moving till its dry and doesnt stick, im sure hot glue would be a mess and i don't recommend it...pock knows what he's talking about

I recommend loctite super glue with precision tip, it has easy to apply small amounts to hard to reach areas and some of the cheaper glues damage plastic. but do move the part around. if it is really loose let it set for a moment then move it more slowly but still moving it so it does not stick.
