How do you tighten the small nut on these without damaging them beyond recognition?

The ARMS "nuts" are designed to be tightened with any coin.

Thanks for your advise. After viewing the parts and knowing how many rounds I plan to put through the upper...I went through this extra step. I cleaned the threads of the screw portion and put on the sight. I used a product called Permatex (Medium Strength) Threadlocker Blue. I then used a flat head screwdriver to tighten the nut. This did not mar the finish in any way. I hope this will enhance holding capability with all the recoiling of the rifle. We'll see! Thanks for the input!

I traded for my ARMS #38...so it didn't come with instructions. Apparently, ARMS requires you to use Loctite or something similar when mounting their stuff.
