I got a new acrylic bath recently and the first muppet who started to install it didn't screw the supporting bars in properly.

I had to get another plumber to install it after the first guy bailed out, but he didn't check the supports were screwed in tightly.

So now my bath creaks and squeaks when I stand on it. I have tried to tighten the screws as much as possible but as they are under
the bath they are very difficult to get to, and one screw has fallen out (I can't get the leverage to force the U hinge back up to put the screw in).

I was thinking of using the silicon bath sealant all around the supports to reduce any movement. Any other recommendations to reduce or stop the movement of the bath against the support bars? Kind of reluctant to use a glue.
