I should say... does anyone use lock tight on the screws that hold the bindings to the board.

put some on, let it dry completely as wet loctite likes to eat plastic

I thought most bindings came with blue loctite on the screws already? if they aren't new bindings but to a new board i have a feeling by using loctite you can actually void the warranty (of either board or bindings cant remember).

Someone correct me if i'm wrong on that last point.

Also if they come with loctite i see no reason why you cant reapply on old screws into a new board

my names's Petey and i have gigantic balls

I think the main difference is that the loctite is dry on the screws, very different to installing them with wet loctite that will completely fill the thread as it winds in and will end up with a much better bond which is not ideal.
