i use a deep socket, 1/4" drive with about a 2 inch extension... when the bolt is about to come out, i slide a finger in there and use it to pull the socket over the bolt.

just as its coming off, i slide my fingertip over the end of the socket, and the bolt is captured.

sometimes this doesnt work (too small a space, too cold, ect...) and in cases like that, i use chewing gum.
chew it up, then jam it inside the socket.
kinda gross, but itll peel/wash off and for me, its always worked perfectly.
