I swap in quite a few UN-26's for my CL bikes I flip.
I can't imagine the cups loosening if one comes halfway close to the proper torque.

As often as not, in order to fully seat the plastic cup without breaking, I back off the fixed cup, seat the plastic cup and then "drive" the fixed cup home.
Removal is the opposite to avoid breaking the plastic. Loosen the fixed cup first.
