HP ProBook 450 G5 - HDD Mounting Screws Loose

HP Recommended
HP ProBook 450 G5
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

We've come across a few Laptops in the past of which the HDD Mounting Screws came loose, resulting in the HDD "slipping" from the bracket, and losing connection to the Mother Board.
Most recently I ran into a HP ProBook 450 G5 yesterday with the exact same issue...

Is this a common thing?

I've noticed this a lot too on the Probook 450 G5's in the office that I work in too, I'm not sure though if there's anything that HP is doing about it. My only thought is that either they weren't tightened enough or if they keep coming loose they might need a little bit of blue loc tite on them.
