Brilliant product must have for the tool box

I have just about come to the end of a tube of loctite 248 bought probably 18 months ago for a one off job and at the time i was begrudging paying £7 for it (well its £7 now!)

Loctite Threadlocker

Halfrauds (not sure on the in store price) is cheapest place i have seen it! works great works on stainless and comes in handy prtitt stick type tube that means if you only use a bit each time you dont waste the tube. Performance wise it seems to have been up to the task. In a marine environment its double useful as it stops things working loose and also seals the threads stopping ingress of water.

Not a fan of the stick stuff, comes loose when under vibrations that normal fluid doesn't.

Used many variants of it over the years in my other hobbies, liquid 248 is way to go in the small red bottles.

Do not use red loctite unless you don't want it to come off though.

Not had any issues with things coming loose, the liquid (242?) goes off before i can use it so buying a tube @ £4 every time gets expensive quick

I personally don't like loctite as I think its a cover up for bad design and poor engineering but it does have its uses it also makes disassembly a pain in the arse especially if you have a bolt thats been broken off and theres loctite on the threads

the stick stuff is terrible with if it is somewhere with vibes, had it fail many times before i twigged it was the stick stuff. went back to normal stuff and no problems again

stick to the little bottles of 242 for best results even at 4 quid, they last about a year or so anyway.

I like locktite in the bottles it doesn't go off as it's anaerobic and only cures in the absence of air I've got a large bottle that I liberated about 7 or 8 years ago and it's still going fine
I don't agree it is covering up for poor design but if it is that's fine by me as long as stuff doesn't come loose. You have to remember when stuff was designed it was brand new everything. During repairs a little extra help won't harm,
I think it helps with disassembly as it stops corrosion setting in and causing stuff to seize
