The ejector on my RO is completely loose. Can I fix it myself?

Remove, clean well, scuff, and reapply loctite. Let cure for 24 hours. I recommend a loctite meant for bonding, not a thread locker

try locktite 648.  it is generally used on slip fit parts but will work well on most loosely fitted stuff.

Or if you can find some Golf shaft epoxy that should work fine.. might be able to find a golf repair shop who would give you some.

Green is the term used for "wicking" when the parts are assembled, it will wick to the mated surfaces. 
Red is the strongest

+1  I used red to attach the plunger tube on a friend's 1911.  I let it cure over night.  No problems so far.

Don’t confuse thread lock with bonding. Loctite makes many more products not just threadlock. It’s best to use the model # when describing products. As each has a different application

680 (Green) Retaining Compound - KC suggested I use it on my H1 Kodiak shades

"LOCTITE®️ 680 is a green, high strength, methacrylate ester acrylic liquid designed for the bonding of cylindrical fitting parts, particularly where low viscosity is required. The product prevents loosening and leakage from shock and vibration. It provides robust curing performance. It works on active metals (e.g. mild steel) and on passive substrates (e.g. stainless steel and plated surfaces)."

680 is perfect for the pressed fit shades.. electors are not really a press fit generally.  You need a bonding glue that will work for a somewhat loose fit..

Locktite makes a ton of very unique glues.. their site has good descriptions of each one.. bet I have 10 different numbered tubes of it in the shop..
