dont listen to this guy saying use blue loctite. Loctite eats away at plastic.

Your gonna need a torque driver to achieve the 1400 ft. lbs. needed to keep them from moving.

But really they only need to be hand tight ~7-9ft. lbs.

You have plastic screws and binding posts?

Dont put a fucking gallon in obviously, or it will overflow and potentially eat at your binding plate.
Put a very small drop on the bottom of the threads on the bolt and screw it in...a miniscule amount goes a very long way as its powerful stuff.

Its not rocket science people.

i guess it depends, i used a tiny drop on each screw and it still managed to eat away at my baseplate. Ended up shattering it.
