JK rear license plate bracket screws back out

One thing I noticed last night is that 3 out of the 4 long threaded screws that hold the rear license plate bracket on will not stay tightened. In fact they start backing their way out. Has anyone else noticed this?

I tried bending the metal insert tabs inward a smidge to apply more pressure, but it did not seem to help. I suppose I could try using a slightly larger screw.

Take each screw out and coat them with clear finger nail Polish and screw em back in, it'll harden and hold em in
