Tried to tighten knob but it is still loose?

I tried to tighten up the knob but it is still loose. What do you suggest?

It sounds like the pull/knob is stripped. Easiest is to replace it but sometimes getting a longer screw will work.

Can I pit a little bit sticky stuff or something else in the knob and put it on the door?

maybe. Try putting a finishing washer behind the head of the screw. And maybe some Loctite on the threads. Or just break down and buy a new knob for $1.
