Yeah that's how it's designed, you can add washers behind the cap nuts to help squeeze the rubber and tighten it some.

I also found my tail light lens loose and no way to tighten it. Ended up putting some thin (IE cut with scissors) foam between it and the plastic. Has worked well now for many many miles.
