I don't recall whether you're talking about a monochrome or color tube.

For a monochrome tube, adjusting the yoke is trivial. And yes, some glue
to keep it in place is a good idea, unless you want to adjust it again soon.

For a color tube, if you move the yoke you also have to deal with
color purity and convergence, which can be a major pain in the ass.
Once you get the purity adjusted (by turning the magnets), you definitely
want to make sure the yoke is not going anywhere.
