No, but it would be best, IF the Screw is metalORYou could also use a non drying sticky glue on the tipI use a product called "dum-dum" it is a hole filler, and does not dry, but is sticky and use a little bit on the tip to hold the screw, metal, brass or plastic
went out and took a look at the real name of the dumdumIt is 3M 08578 strip calk, like:https://www.summitracing.com/parts/tes-08578
