Blue loctite makes at least some kinds of plastic brittle - so the disk may break.

Tighten them each night before you ride. Make it a ritual.

As posted above, I wouldn't suggest using nail polish either. Keep any and all chemicals away from your disks. If you want a quick and easy fix, put toothpaste on your screws. It won't last as long as Loctite, but provides enough friction to keep them from loosening.

Check all your hardware before you shred.

suchislife If you don't want to buy a tube of loctite for one screw a bit of nail polish will do almost the same thing. Just put some on the bolt and screw it in, leave for 24hrs to dry.

NWBoarder Cold temps and a bunch of vibrations and pressure on the screw. Loosening is not uncommon. Put a little bit of blue loc-tite on it and you should be good to go.
