Are you cleaning all the oil residue off and installing them to the correct torque spec? Usually when they are tightened by hand they are left too loose.

Also, if actually tq'ing them to spec doesn't work. Try spraying hairspray
on the tube before hand..
I've heard that it seals it really well once it dries.

Be sure and get all the oil residue off first. I clean both the pipe and boots with brake clean before assembling.

Yep, no amount of Gorilla Glue would keep them on if they're oily and dirty..
