Default Tightening shaft during round

I have a driver with shaft adapter that is coming loose during play.
Before hitting on the 3rd tee I notice the adapter screw is rattling so I tighten it. Have I broken the rules?

Thanks

No, what you've described is not a breach of any Rule.

4-3. Damaged Clubs: Repair and Replacementa. Damage in Normal Course of Play
If, during a stipulated round
, a player’s club is damaged in the normal course
of play, he may:
(i) use the club in its damaged state for the remainder of the
stipulated round

(ii) without unduly delaying play, repair it or have it repaired; or

(iii) as an additional option available only if the club is unfit for play, replace

the damaged club with any club. The replacement of a club must not
unduly delay play (Rule 6-7) and must not be made by borrowing any club
selected for play by any other person playing on the
course or by assembling components carried by or for the player during the
stipulated round

as for the rules that i gave last night there is nothing wrong with fixing it but if you were to switch settings or lofts then it would be against the rules but to be honest if you are just out having a casual round it shouldn't matter but if you are in a tourny or league play then the rules would apply but again if you are just fixing your club and it does not interfere with pace of play then your good to go

So rules only apply in tourney or league play?
