For any screws that need to be retained and are not subject to significant vibration Loctite 222 is all you will ever need. Having said that for screws/set screws etc M3 and under I always dab a touch of nail varnish or paint on the edge of the screw after I've fitted it rather than use 222 as even 222 will be sufficiently strong for the heads to be rounded off before it releases.

35 years designing, building and using manipulators in reactors and I havent lost a screw yet
