Pocket door problem

I have a pocket door that requires continual adjustment to keep it from dragging on the floor. I know how to adjust the screw in the header to raise the door, but after about a month the door has dropped again. What can be done to solve this problem?

Where to apply it? Above, below the nut or both?

You want the loctite to end up between the threads on the bolt and the ones on the nut.
