Default Loctite & Snowboarding...

Hey guys, just a thread to spark a little conversation...I recently saw a commercial that aired during the XGames showing Sage Kotsenburg pushing loctite. Everything I've read up on, Loctite or anything to the equivalent is a big no-no with binding screws...anyone care to elaborate?

Blue Loctite is the one recommended. The red one can be use but it will be harder to remove your screws.

You can use blue and it works great. The red needs to be heated slightly before it releases, but don't use the green.

Don't go looking for trouble. ONLY use the BLUE. Any other colour takes you down an ugly road. Also consider using TEFLON tape. Works very well on binding screws and will always release.

Teflon is good, I have used it on my binding screws as well many times...did this season when I bought some new bindings. It's all about preference. But agreed, don't set yourself up for a headache down the road!

There's actually been a couple threads about this in the last year or so. Several manufacturers pre-apply blue loctite to their screws, so it can't be a big no-no!

Recently Burton has taken to adding a notch to their screws, and filling it with hard plastic. My guess is it'll work along the same theory as a lock nut.

I only equate the big no-no to buying burton bindings in the past and the manual states to not add loctite and from hear-say from people...I just use Teflon over the factory added blue loctite
