You could try some Teflon tape on the screw.

You could go with a slightly larger screw, or how would it work to go all the way through with a nut on the back side like most frames? I'm thinking that would hold the best. Yea, I'm not too fond of the screws going into plastic like that. I'm just waiting for mine to strip, or the phillips head of the screw to strip.
