This is the punch line to a 4 page joke

Stony Rice Attachment 44618 Notice the loctite is only on a part of the threads and not all the way around.

These are from my Unions.

hardasacatshead I use nail polish rather than loctite (ha! My mac just autocorrected that to lactate... awesome). It's easier to break the seal and unscrew but still stops screws/bolts from vibrating loose. I used the same approach on all of my archery gear as it's subjected to a lot of high frequency vibration, was perfect for that because there are a lot of parts that you don't want to over tighten.

Also, I can't believe I'm contributing to a 3 page thread on the application of loctite (lol, did it again... bulk lactating this evening).

You're not supposed to use a spray gun to apply loctite ya numpty. If you're getting it on your top sheet then you shouldn't be allowed to touch it or any other adhesive. Do you have your pen license yet? Maybe that's a good place to start.

tanscrazydaisy The whole point of loctite is to prevent loosening due to vibrations. Snowboard bindings are subjected to a lot of it

That's only relevant if the screws are all the same length, and baseplates are all the same thickness. Of course you have to make sure the screws are tight enough, but loc-tite can also help...

70'sskater I see a lot of posts about loc-tite and teflon tape, but in the old days when binding manufacturers actually gave us a decent set of instructions instead of a 3 page manual of illustrations that looked like a 10 yr scratched out, they used to say make sure you get at least 3 full turns when you tighten your binding bolts down. If you get less than that they will prob come loose. how many turns are your bolts getting?
