iPad mini 4 home button replacemnt

I’m repairing an iPad Mini 4 LTE that had a demolished screen - to the point where the wake/lock sensor and home button were almost non-existent.

I’ve installed the replacement screen and home button and was able to get into the settings and turn off the wake/lock feature to get around the need for the sensor. The home button works (no touch id of course), but the bracket isn’t quite stable enough - I used the double sided red adhesive that is normally used on the frame.

What is a standard adhesive to use with the home button brackets (short of using super glue)?

I usually use a good quality tape, either the 3M or Teva tape and then apply a bead of two-part epoxy around the bracket to give it a more solid feel. This is what’s done now right from the factory.
