I have Perlicks on both of my taps and they are VERY easy to pull forward for drawing a beer. So much so that some of my heavy tap handles can't even be used because the faucet can't hold them.

Is there any way to tighten this up so that you have to pull harder on the handle in order to get the beer flowing?

Yeah, tighten the ring that the handle stud sticks through. It compresses onto the ball harder. You can make it so tight that you can barely open it.
