Never used it, but I'd like some for my knife harness screws/attachments.

M Sea, personally I wouldn’t use it. It’s an unknown and may lead to heartbreak down the track.

I either use no tread locker, nail polish and at very best Loctite 222, which I also use on rifle scope mounts and rings.

Just my AU$0.02c worth. :)

Let us know what you think. Loc-tite hasn't been working that great for me, would like an alternative.

Hmmm adjustable, reusable? I really like the idea in theory, wonder how it holds up in use? I'm interested to know your thoughts on it M Sea. Please let us know what you think after you've tried it out! :)

I've heard it's good stuff. I usually use the loctite stick myself, 248 I believe. Works great for me. I was testing Teflon plumbers tape, but it was inconsistent. If you didn't use enough it didn't work, and if you put enough to work it's tough to turn the screw. Went back to the loctite stick and have been happy.

Is Locktite 222 the blue kind?

Really nail polish?

Used blue Locktite for years now on knives, guns, scope mounts, car, truck and motorcycles with no issues.

I use blue Locktite on any knife I take apart. Never had issues with it.

222 is purple low strength. And yes, nail polish works as a threadlocker :)

Thanks, I didn’t even know about the purple kind. I have the blue Loctite in glue stick form like Nick Shabazz suggested, Seems like a good idea haven’t used it yet though.
Does anyone have objections about the blue Loctite?

I use the blue stick all the time, no problems. I only loctite the pivot of my knives.

Hey Blue, Loctite 222 is the weakest they make I believe, and t’s more than adequate for tiny, fine threaded screws holding knife etc. together.

Nail polish works just as well I reckon, and it’s way easier to clean up if you disassembled a knife. :)

All I’ve ever used is medium-strength Loctite. I believe it’s called blue Loctite. Never had any problems with a screw backing out with it.

I’m probably unusual around here, because I don’t disassemble my knives. I do occasionally move my clips to different positions. Or Loctite a small screw that might come loose from the factory (which has almost never happened).

Thanks for the info everyone. I suppose I’m going to go ahead and use the blue Loctite. If anyone else thinks this is a bad idea please chime in before I mess something up. :eek:
