 Making tuning rings stay put

Any clever solutions for making a tuning ring stay in the socket over multiple times putting the clarinet together?

I use a dab of cork grease, but eventual it sticks to the the tenon and comes and and, if I don't notice, is lost...

If you don't want it to be too permanent, rubber cement might work. If you don't want it to come out without effort, contact cement would hold.

I'm not a repairer, but I don't know if I would want them to stay put. Moisture trapped between the ring and the socket could do ugly things, I am afraid.

jthole is correct. I worked with tuning rings briefly a few years ago. I quit because they fell out so much as to be inconvenient- then when I got them to stay put with a bit of my favorite easily removable "Marine Goop", I got mold* underneath. Blech.

*well- at least some kind of white coating I thought might be mold, or what would turn into mold soon enough

I use clark Fobes 1.5mm rings on my Yamaha 622 II bass clarinet. It fits snug and doesn’t move. Thankfully it’s a metal socket that it sits in.

I"ve used the centre of CDs cut down to size to fit snugly into the tuning barrel sockets of my Bb and A Clarinets. Usually only had to use one , or two at the most. After a while I stopped using them as I ended up deciding that it wasn't all that important.
