FIrst, find a rubber band.
Try to find the thickest one you can.
It must be tight around the focus ring on your camera lens.

Poke your rubber band with a needle, making a small hole in it. 
Then, insert your screw through the hole and glue it in place.
Make sure to glue the bottom of the screw so you dont scratch your lens.
