Answer: 

You can't just use a clamp without any kind of compression. With a standard clamp and standard, you could use ICS compression or SCS compression (but you'd need a new SCS clamp).

Answer: 

It looks like the Ethic Legion forks are meant for ICS, but you can use them with SCS if you cut the top of the forks off and install a starnut. I presume you've done that and you're using SCS correctly. If you haven't, then your SCS will never work correctly. So if you have set it up correctly and it's coming loose, you can add a little bit of heavy machine grease to the compression bolt to cause it to move more slowly under vibrations. Also, make sure that you tighten your bolts a little at a time, but favor the bars or the fork a tad if one is slipping in relation to the SCS. Also, make sure your fork and bars are clean to help the SCS clamp grip them tightly.

Installing an SCS clamp system isn't as scary as it seems.

Installing a Standard Compression System (SCS) clamp can be tricky if no one has shown you how to do it right. Even after you get your SCS installed, it can be challenging to get it locked down just right. When dealing with an SCS, the first and most important precaution you should keep in mind is to not let anyone that you don't trust mess with it. Often times, someone might be trying to help when they think they know what they are doing and they might accidentally wreck your $80 clamp. I don't let anyone else work on my kid's scooters not because I don't trust them, but because if I screw it up, then I have to pay for it. If someone else breaks a part, I don't want to deal with that awkward interaction of who has to pay for it.
