1/4 turn shutoff valve


Installed several of these in a bathroom on 1/2" copper pipe. One of the valves started to leak around the handle not the soldered connection. Replaced it. The others did not leak. After turning on one of the other valves it started to leak. Can the valve be fixed or tightened at the handle? Thanks
