The nipple should be solidly attached to the plate. Mine was loose as you describe yours to be. I called the Topsider folks and they sent me a new fitting with the nipple solidly crimped/sweged/whatever to the plate. It works well now. You might try sealing the nipple joint with RTV compound while you're waiting.
