Want a free adapter and patient enough to wait for a couple of weeks to get them?
"To receive a special adapter free of charge, call 1-800-24-BRITA or 1-800-387-6940 (CANADA)."
Call the number above and a voice prompt will give you instructions on how to get your adapter for free. 2 weeks might be too long but the best thing is it is made of stainless steel/chrome and it comes in 3 different kind of adapters with rubber washers.

I also had this problem where my Brita on tap filter would fall off with the slightest touch. With our faucet, no adapter was needed. As others have mentioned, the problem is that with the white washer/mesh dome assembly in place, there is not enough additional threading to secure the unit to the faucet under pressure.
My solution was to do the following:
1) Remove the white washer/ mesh dome assmebly and pry the washer away from the mesh...keep the mesh.
2) Go to Lowes, Ace, or any hardware store and get some teflon valve packing string, like this from Lowes - http://preview.tinyurl.com/27g55pu. I had some on hand after repairing an outdoor spigot. This stuff compresses a great deal and forms an amazing seal.
3) Lay the teflon string inside the water filter where the old washer was. Mark where it overlaps and cut it. Sort of pack it in and flatten it out a bit with a flathead screwdriver, especially where it overlaps.
4) Place the mesh dome on top of your new, low profile washer. Wrap some regular teflon tape around the threads of your faucet and re-attach the filter.
That should do it. The teflon washer will compress far more than the original rubber one, allowing more thread to grab onto the faucet and creating a rock solid connection. The teflon tap on the faucet will prevent any leakage that might occur at the point where your make-shift washer overlaps.
Hope this helps someone out! Thanks...
