Rattling optima driving light headlights

I'm so ticked right now!

I took my new recumbent into a bikeshop for a tuneup. They charged an extra $10 for handling a recumbent. Here's why I'm pissed! Instead of putting the bike on a workstand, they just turned it upside down and rested the bike on the seat and my DIY driving lights!!!

The driving lights are now rattling like crazy when I'm biking... loose in their attachment. I can't find a way to cinch them. It appears like the weight applied to them has loosened their housings. Those *******s! To think that they charged me extra, only to use flip the bike upside down. *******S!

I remember reading that someone else ended up having these lights rattle after a couple of thousand miles... were any easy solutions found?
