UNS Regulator's SMC Needle Valve Help

So recently I purchased the UNS dual stage regulator. I discovered that the needle valve for the regulator swivels. I have already accidentally dumped the water in my bubble counter several times because of this. I could place the bubble counter on the tubing closer to the tank so the swiveling of the needle valve does not effect it but I also have a 6 way splitter that I might use in the future. And when I do, I would like to attach the bubble counters to the splitter. Is there a different needle valve or a fitting that I can purchase so that it does not swivel?

And because pictures always help, I have added a picture of the regulator I found online.
