That's what it is for.
The key is to not tighten it to the point where it binds at the extremes of
steering linkage travel.
Because 99.9% of your driving is close to straight-ahead the middle section
of the mechanism wears more than the extremes -- thus if you tighten while
in the straight-ahead position you may bind & do damage when turning.
There is a modified adjustment screw available that is spring-loaded to pick
up some of the looseness in the middle w/o binding at the ends. I use one
and it helps a bit. Not a miracle cure for a badly worn box, just a little
help for a slightly worn one.
