The valve gate has a short stub with male threads and can not be held to tighten the rod because it is recessed. That stub spins in the gate. Take the end on the rod, put a little locktite on it and screw it on that stub. Put a little locktite on the other end of the rod and screw the knob on. See Rockwood's picture to see how the gate is hidden.

You could put a nut on the stub, pull it out, and then snap on a pair of vice grips on the shaft to keep it from turning. You could also use the nut as a locking nut behind the knob.
