Vista Cruise Issue

I recently installed a Vista Cruise throttle control on my Wee. It's not the universal one, it's the one that has the tab that goes between the two throttle cable tubes coming out of the throttle housing. I secured it to the outside of the housing using some JB Weld. It's secure, but when I try to use it, it holds the speed for a few seconds, then it just rolls off. I'm afraid if I adjust it any tighter than it already is, the throttle won't roll off when I let go of it. Any suggestions here?

I've used the basic one on the last several bikes I've had. Now I have one on my DL.
You said you're afraid it won't roll off when you let go of it. It isn't supposed to roll off when you let go of it.
I'd use the little key it came with & tighten it some more. I've always been able to over power it if needed.
