Ah. Given that your parts are already separated, then, yep, I'd add some stuff. I don't want to pull our new one apart in order to fix it that way, though, also on the assumption that it was "glued" that way already as it was made up in the first place. (He said, hopefully.)
Hence the idea about the hose clamp or ties.
