2 things.

-Metal baseplates/discs will work themselves loose because the parts are so stiff and static, there is always a tiny bit of play. I have used both kinds, and if you tighten plastic discs down, this doesn't happen (it can but not nearly as much, for obvious reasons).

-from BurtonAvenger: put a drop of clear nail polish in the insert holes or on the tips of your mounting screws. It won't get brittle in the cold, cheaper than loctite, and easier to work with later so u don't strip out your screw heads. I rode Ride ContraBands for most of a season, constantly had the same problem, the clear nail polish WORKS.
