The shaded areas of these diagrams indicate where this threadlocker should be applied in various types of threaded assemblies.


Diagram of threadlocker placement
Diagram of threadlocker placement

Threadlocker 262 is applied as a liquid to the threads of screws, nuts and bolts before assembly. The red, high-strength formula keeps connections securely tightened, even during the most severe vibration, shock and stress. Threadlocker also seals out air, water and grime to prevent rust or other corrosion from forming, ensuring that the connected assemblies will remain sound for a long time. Uncorroded assemblies come apart easier and can be reused.


This threadlocker requires heat (500F) to free parts for disassembly with hand tools. Five minutes' application of a torch may be required. Disassemble while parts are still hot.


This threadlocker is anaerobic (hardens in the absence of air) and requires contact with an active metal to cure. Active metals (those that tarnish, corrode or rust) include brass, copper, bronze, iron, soft steel and nickel. If both parts to be joined are made of inactive materials, Loctite Klean 'N Prime primer must be applied to one of the surfaces for curing to occur. Inactive materials include plated parts, stainless steel, zinc, galvanized steel, magnetite steel, pure aluminum, titanium, magnesium, gold, silver, plastic, cadmium, Iconel, natural or chemical black oxide and anodized aluminum.


Klean 'N Prime can speed the cure rate of Threadlocker 262. This is especially helpful when you are applying the adhesive to any material, active or inactive, in colder temperatures (below 70 F).

The Loctite will keep the bolts from coming loose and prevent further wear because of loose hardware.

I can see why you would want to use that one as it does not involve splicing, but each of the harnesses that fit a 2006 Suburban Z71 are going to require splicing to install, and for that I recommend the Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267.

    Between the base plates that fit your 2011 Honda CR-V, the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX2246 and Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit # RM-521559-5, I recommend the Roadmaster as it will be the slightly easier installation. The reason for that is the Roadmaster does not require having to saw off part of the bumper core in order to install the base plates, which the Blue Ox does require. That is the major difference between the two installs so if it were my 2011 Honda CR-V I would...

I recommend moving the rack up and down slightly as you tighten that threaded bolt. That should secure the shank to your hitch.

  • Is Thread Locker Recommended Installation Hardware of etrailer Brand e98906 Trailer Hitch
    If the # e98906 hitch installation hardware is torqued according to the instructions, it won't be necessary to use # LT37420 thread locker. You can certainly do so if you wish, however please note that the torque specs mentioned in the installation instructions are for dry torque. If thread locker is used you'd use different torque specs (wet torque) which can be looked up online dependent on the size and class of the fastener.
