How to Tighten Kitchen Faucet Handle

We have a single handle kitchen faucet.
(see picture below - sorry for the poor picture quality).

The handle is starting to get very loose.
Is there a way to tighten the handle?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions and help.

All the faucet handles I've seen of that type can be tightened by removing the very small screw-hole cover with a finger nail or the edge of a butter knife on the bottom-front side of the handle, which may be a red/blue temperature indicator symbol, then there will be either a very small screw (use a pocket-size screwdriver), Allen head screw, or Torx head screw. Once the screw is tight all should be OK.

abarkl - thanks for the reply and help.

I was wondering if the red/blue temperature indicator symbol was removable to expose a screw.

Wanted to check with the experts here before trying to pry it off.

The screw does go down from the top. It's possibly behind that blue/red cover.

Mine is under that little cap. I'm thinking about using some removable LocTite because it is a regular thing with most all single handle faucets.

Blue is the one to get.

Yes, the screw is behind it....chances.are it will be a Allen screw (octagon) pry The screw cover off with a sharp knife. Chances are that it will be a Allen screw.

Thanks for everyone's help.

Got it fixed this week-end.

As indicated, it was a small allen screw behind the hot/cold indicator / rubber plug.
