Clear nail polish dip your screws in it and tighten those fuckers down.

only problem with this is you will need to tap out all that junk to wax your board. That stuff will surely leave a lot of residue behind in the threads.

OP I'm thinking you have gotten rust build-up in there over the years and now you are bottoming out the screws on the fine particles of rust and they are not allowing you to seat them to the tightest point so that they now back out on you.

It won't leave shit behind and why are you worried about the inserts when waxing what are you coating the topsheet? Fuck I swear people on this site get more and more retarded as the days pass on.

WHAT you ass hat !!!!! You loosen the base plates to wax the bottom of the board or are you that stupid that you leave the screws tight when you wax it.
And yes the material will be left behind, how will it pull itself out once you break the lock of the nail polish.

Don't be so judgemental....

good for you I understand I'm not an expert on boarding never claimed to be. I was giving good, thought out advice to help a fellow member. I'm sorry I disagreed with your fix, but if it works excellent. It will help out the OP'er

No idea where you thought we were doing something on waxing the top sheet.....I always remove my bindings when I wax my board. You professionals might not do it that way and that is fine. I assume you having worked in shop longer than me, you loosen the base plates?
As most people know including you being an expert, loc-tite can't be loosened continually and retain its locking power. Much like your nail polish idea, once you break the seal to wax the base of the board, you would need to apply more to loc the screws into place again.

Reading comprehension escapes you.

Evidently logic fails to grasp at your weak mind. Loctite = no no, clear nail polish = yes yes. Now if you want me to break it down for you on where I gathered you're waxing the topsheets I can do that for you since you obviously didn't comprehend what you read in my response pointing out your stupidity. When you get a few more years of riding/tuning under your belt maybe then we can have a conversation you might grasp till then kindly go fist yourself.

Cool

This statement doesn't mean you are waxing the top sheet: you will need to tap out all that junk to wax your board.
hahahaha
or feel free to point out my error, I'm fine with that.

I just see nail polish as a ghetto version of loctite. But if it works for you that's fine, keep using it.

Sall good a good fisting works to relive stress.

Again I hope some of this banter and variation in tips from everyone HELPS arsenic0 rather than
