Default Loose diffuser finger

I just noticed that one the fingers on my bowl diffuser is a little loose. It's not falling out *knock wood* but I can turn it around in the socket. Do you think that will affect it's performance, lets say, if it did fall out? I suppose there's always super glue, right? Has anyone ever encountered this?

I had a bowl diffuser finger completely break off (totally my klutzy fault). I tried super-glue, but it wouldn't hold. I've been using it with the missing finger for months now and it's just fine.

(Note to self: not a good idea to drop your hair dryer on the floor!)

If superglue works more power to ya but if it drops off it will still be fine. I drop my dryer constant. This one I have now has all it's fingers so far but only because I drop it on my foot. My last one had one missing

I'm having this same trouble with my diffuser, a couple of the fingers are about to break off. My husband tells me epoxy will work. Epoxy can withstand high temperatures. It basically works by melting the plastic.

My husband -- Mr. Fix-It -- tells me I need to drill two small holes (one of the diffuser and one on the finger) so the epoxy can have something to hold to. Not sure what he means by that. He said he would do it, but I ain't holding my breath.
