I like to use epoxy. Usually found at your local hardware or autoparts store. Look for the metal epoxy, on the package it should list if it also bonds plastic. In my experience, if it something that doesn' get moved around a lot, it will hold, but if you are stressing the joint, it's always best to just replace the part.
