Help with bindings always getting loose

I bought a LIB tech emmagator used because i dont have the funds to get a new board. It says to use mg hardware with it only. I have no idea what that means. I went ahead and just used normal hardware because the screws lined up. The back binding did fine was tight all four days. However after one or two times down the mountain the front binding would be loose. Anyone know what the issue could be? And i was tightening them enough.

The threads are probably just getting eaten up a bit from the bolts being taken in and out over and over as its used..

Two things you can do

1) If you are using his old screws, take them to the hardware store and buy new ones.
2) While you are there, buy a bobble of Blue(NOT RED) loctite. Put a very very very very small amount on the end of the bolt and screw it in. You dont want any of the loctite to come up out of the top or you way overdid it...in this case less is more this stuff is powerful. You should barely be able to tell that its on the screw after you put some on and wipe a thin layer around the bottom few threads of the screw.
