Super Glue? I use super glue to "build" a collection of washers and the nut for difficult to reach places. I know this doesn't address the specific issue here but it could make part of it simpler. I put a little clay in the socket, press the washers and nut (all one piece thanks to super glue) into the socket and reach the collection up to the threaded end of the fastener with an extension and it stays together long enough to take a few truns with the socket. I haven't tried super glue to hold the fastener from above but it might do a good job.
