Loctite on Titan Spinner Racks


Recommended Posts

I recently broke down my Titan Spinner Racks and had them powder coated black. Not thinking about the amount of vibration they take, I did not put any loctite on them after re-assembly. Well now all of the screws are starting to come loose after 15 - 20 hrs. Can I / should I use loctite to keep this from happening. If so what color red or blue?

Thanks.

You're welcome. With that good lookin' work bench, you should be answering these types of question.

The reason I say blue is because it is more "removable" than red. Red is more "permanent".

A stainless screw is much harder than the aluminum it's going into and therefore, I'd want a slightly less-strong bond.

:cry: I recently stripped a bolt hole in my motorcycle from constantly taking this particular stainless bolt out of it's alumin. hole with loctite on it every time.

Thanks for the complement. I think part of the problem is that I fell so hard boarding today that my brain hurts and I could not figure out the whole stainless on aluminum issue. Getting old sucks on days like today. The 20 somthings that fell even hader than me feel fine and are ready to go out and party. I just want to go to bed.

Any of you guys ever seen a nylock bolt?

Apparently, there is a a strip of nylon running straight down the length of the threaded part of the bolt. The nylon sticks out of the threads just enough to cause a drag on the connection, just like a nylok nut does. I've heard of them but, have never seen one.

In my google search for them just now I didn't find anything but, I did find this. What in the world would you use this on? Maybe my super squeeky trailer leaf spring mounting bolts?

Those look sick blacked out, great job.

Blue loc-tite is the way to go.

Hey that is pretty cool man! We actually manufacture that rack and have not seen that done, looks sick.

Do you have a pic of the front? What did you do with the logo plate did you powder coat it to?
