Default Bindings coming loose

So lately with my bindings, every few runs up on the mountain, my bindings come loose. I'm not missing any screws or anything, they just come loose. I tighten them on the mountain when I see this happening but after a couple runs, they become loose again...

I've searched up some solutions and a couple of people have said that they have used blue loctite to keep their bindings tight. I have never used it before and would like some input on it before I put it on. Do you guys think it's a good idea? Or shall I just keep on tightening them every couple of runs?

This happens to my buddy all the time. Something about the way he rides just rattles the shit out of bindings. Damn things coming loose on the board, toe straps falling off, all kinds of shit. I know it's not his setup because the same thing has happened to him when he's borrowed boards from me. I don't know what the fuck he's doing, but it's definitely something he's doing because I don't have those issues with the exact same setup.

Just get the blue locktite, I think all binding screws come with it applied anyway. Your not going to screw up your inserts or anything if thats what your worried about.

Good thing your inserts are metal. This is hilarious. That little dot of Loctite isn't going to cause any harm and unless you're going full retard it'll never touch any plastic on your board. All these binding manufacturers wouldn't be using it if it was devouring top sheets.

Yeah, my old unions came with some loctite on the bolts already and I've added a drop to stop bolts coming loose before. No problem unscrewing if you need to and I managed to pick all the loctite out when I changed bindings.

Maybe give it a miss if you think you're going to spill it on your top sheet though
