So the input jack on my 260SM keeps coming lose sorta thing. it's like the nut around it keeps coming lose but, there's no issue with like it falling out or losing connection

Is this normal?

I've tried doing it up with tighter with a pair of pliers but it just seemed to come lose again a few days later

Considering the amount of use that nut gets, I'd say it's not too abnormal. I had to tighten mine up occasionally, but as you said, every couple of days... It's made of metal, so you could make it extremely tight if possible and not damage it.

dude!
DONT over screw it! you will totally screw it this way. I did it with mine and i had to change it, and trust me it's not an easy job to do.
Try to screw it as much as you can and after that make a routine in putting the cable around your strap, this way, it wont rotate while you move around with the guitar

Yeah that's what i was thinking, because it's only plastic around the nut so you'll crush the plastic and **** it. so i'll just do it with my fingers and a bit with pliers if i can be bothered

if you do it to much you can rip it from the wire..... happened to me

the only way you should tighten it. also add a locking washer or paint clear nail polish on the jack threads to lock it.
