Exactly.

If you wanna look cool, put needles in your eyes and play.

With the plate off, get a good grip of the OUTPUT socket and tighten the ring on the outside.

It's a common problem, which can often be resolved just by tightening, worst case scenario, you'll need a new one - which is just a case of removing the old one and re-soldering 2 wires.

exactly what you need to do. There's enough slack in the wires to take it out far enough, use some thin tweezers to grab the socket, and use some pliers to tighten the ring. It will eventually get loose again but if you tighten it well it should be ok for a substantial amount of time.
