loctite threadlock
#1
Hello just to pick a few brain cells wanted to buy some threadlock to stop things rattling undone. Seems straight forward enough but they come in different strengths, what do people recommend? Didn’t want to use one that meant you couldn’t get them undone, i have brought a bondloc before in low strength but fond it would never dry, i assume your meant to let it dry before bolting things back together Undecided. Also get the impression the strength is to do with tread size Undecided Please help,many thanks Smile

Will pop some through your letter box in the morning. Beats neighbours asking for some sugar for their coffee.

I use the blue one, medium strength, holds well but still can get the bolts out when you need to without thinking they will snap.

Can't remember number now but same as Derek says. A little heat also helps release thread lock.
