Does it slightly shake or do you tighten it down hard?

Which transducer? Where is it being mounted? What do you mean by "give"? Every one I've ever mounted has been solidly attached. Any wiggle in a mounting connection typically means it WILL wiggle, and eventually wallow out the mounting holes, or cause mounting hardware to loosen.

A Humminbird XHS transducer has some "play" in the transom mount. That is part of the impact break-away feature. No issues with its function. No screws can tighten it.
