A dab of silicone at each one will probably work just fine. You can get clear silicone caulk so it won't show.

Trex railing aluminum spindles rattle

I just installed the same railing system. I built the framing of my deck extra sturdy and am so annoyed by the trex spindles rattling when somebody takes a heavy step. Any other fixes rather than a dab of silicon?
