I think there is a curved spring washer that goes between the screw and the  
lever, but it looked like it was there to provide some friction for the  
lever, not to help hold the screw in.  You should just be able to tighten the  
screw using a sharp pointed pair of tweezers (it's a left-hand thread!)  
enough that it won't become loose in normal use.  You can use loctite, but  
that will make disassemly quite a bit harder (depending on the compound) in  
the future.
