I don't know if crazyglue will hold but i would use 3M 5200 or any other similar poliurethanic bonding maybe
with some wraps of self vulcanizing rubber tape over it .
I use this to do watertight joints on the power cable feeding my well pump what is approx. 60 ft. under water for years now.
You should use the special formulated crazy glue for plastics Krazy Glue Plastic Primer to bond and strenghten the parts together and
cover it then with a layer of 5200 to seal it better.
