Hey everyone, I have a 2019 Specialized P3 I got off a friend. Mid ride my pedal found it’s way to wriggle out and stripped my cranks. After having it retapped and a insert put it, I put my pedal back in and it keeps loosening. Have I done something wrong?

Shouldn't pedals be tightening themselves rather than loosening, because one side is counter threaded? Did you tap it the wrong direction? Is it the drive side pedal?

The Tap they put in is reversed
