Glass Filled Propellers

I need a little advice about how to make glassfilled propellers not come loose from the spinner so often. I think this caused my recent crash.

If they come loose it's because of too little friction between the prop and spinner. Most glass filled props are quite hard so they tend to be a bit slippery. The spinner surface should have grooves in it much the same as a prop driver does to grip the prop. If the spinner surface is smooth then you can make a washer out of some wet and dry paper to go between the prop and the spinner to add friction.
