Do I need to secure the pipe (co2 tubing where tubing needs to be heated before use) into a glass drop counter/diffuser using maybe zip-ties? or this is unnecessary?

the fitting is tight enough, there shouldnt really be that much pressure to be able to force it off. diffuser "inlets" are always 1mm bigger than the co2 tubing.

To slightly soften the co2 pipe - boil the kettle and pour hot water into a mug, place the end of the co2 pipe into the hot water - wait approx 5 mins and then push pipe onto diffuser - goes on a lot easier this way.
