Expert Answers about Loctite

  • Is Loctite Required When Installing a Trailer Hitch
  • In most cases Loctite is not required when installing a trailer hitch, but it would not be a bad idea. I suggest using the Loctite Blue Stick Threadlocker, # LT37643, which will provide a secure grip and protect against water and grime.

  • What is the Best Sealant for Trailer and RV Roof
  • I strongly recommend the Loctite Urethane Sealant, # L0150811. I used this sealant on my trailer when I replaced a roof vent about 4 years ago and it is still going strong. This sealant does a great job at holding up to dramatic temperature changes without shrinking, drying up or cracking. It is gray in color, but it can be painted. I used a white gloss paint to match to sheen of the trailer's roof. This sealant works great on all types of trailer materials including metal, wood, and...

  • Sealant Recommendation for Sealing Windows and Vents on Camper Trailer
  • For what you are looking to do we recommend the Loctite Urethane Sealant, part # L0150811, to help seal the trailer from the elements. The Loctite urethane sealant is applied as a thick liquid to parts before assembly or in seams after assembly to create a waterproof bond in a variety of applications. It can seal doors, windows, vents and other areas in enclosed trailers where water could enter.

  • Removing Loctite Rearview Mirror Adhesive From Windshield
  • I spoke with my contact for Loctite and she said there is not an easy method or product that can remove the Loctite Rearview Mirror Adhesive, part # LT37438. She said the adhesive will soften when exposed to heat, but cautioned to wait until a hot day and attempt to remove with a razor blade. It is not recommended to try and apply direct heat to a specific area of the windshield because heat concentrated in a small area can cause the windshield to shatter.

  • What is Loctite 242 Made Of
  • Loctite 242, # LT37477, is made of a liquid synthetic polymer that cures in an anaerobic environment, which basically means that it will not harden in the presence of air, and it cures when it is sandwiched in the threads between active metals like a nut and bolt. I have included a table, see link, that shows the make up of Loctite for you to review.

  • Will the Loctite Urethane Sealant Seal Lexan Polycarb to Fiberglass on a 1996 Winnebago Motorhome
  • I spoke to my contact at Loctite and she said that the Loctite Urethane Sealant # L0150811 that your referenced should do well to seal lexan polycarb to a gel coat or fiber glass on your 1996 Winnebago motorhome skylight.

  • Loctite Rear Window Defogger Recommendation for Reconnecting Rear Window Defogger Tab
  • This Loctite Rear Window Defogger Tab Adhesive # LT21351 that you referenced should work well for your application. This product will work to reattach defogger/defroster tabs on rear windshields of vehicles. The heating element that runs through rear windshields is usually referred to as a defogger as it is generally more efficient at removing fog than removing frost. But either way it will work for you to reconnect the tab that is broken on your vehicle. Especially when it comes...

  • Is Locktite 5699 Gasket Maker. # LT37464 the Same as # 18718
  • I searched the Loctite industrial site and the Locktite 5699 Grey Prod. # LT37464, is the same as the 18718 that you referenced. The product comes in different sizes containers and different container amounts to a case and the 18718 is just a variant of that.

  • Green Loctite Recommendation for Squeaky Bottom Bracket Bearings
  • Green Loctite like part # LT37424 should work very well for you, and in the event you need to remove the bearings the trick to releasing green Loctite is heat. Some use a soldering iron to heat the area enough so that it releases. You will use this to secure the bearing cup to the bottom bracket just to be clear.

  • Can Loctite Disc Brake Quiet Stick be Used on Shimmed Pads
  • I spoke with my contact at Loctite and she stated that the Disc Brake Quiet Stick # LT40300 referenced in your question can be used on shimmed pads. You will just want to make sure it does not come in contact with any surface that is in friction or in constant contact with the rotor. I have included the user guide for this part that you can also look over.

  • The Loctite Windshield Repair Kit, # LT37613, is meant for small bullseye types of chips in glass. The round pads that are included are approximately 2 inches in diameter. I have included a link to a video review of this product for you. You would not want to use it on anything much larger than what you see in the video.

  • Securing Replacement Dome Seal # BVD0455-01
  • I would start off by trying to secure the corners of the Replacement Dome Seal, # BVD0455-01, using a silicone sealant like the TremPro 644 Silicone Sealant, # 0160297. I am unsure if trimming the corners will help.

  • Can Loctite Thread Sealant 545 be Used with Potable Water Systems
  • Loctite Thread Sealant 545 # LT37482 is not designed for potable water systems and should not be used. There are chemicals in it that can be harmful if ingested. If joining copper pipes I recommend using solder to join non-threaded pieces and thread seal tape such as # A05-0265 on the threads of threaded pieces. Plumbers dope can be used on the plastic PVC-like pipes; available at hardware stores. If the PVC pipes are not threaded you should use primer and the appropriate adhesive for joining...

  • Is there a Way to Lock D-Ring Shackles to Front Of Jeep Wrangler Bumper
  • Most Jeep guys leave the D-rings inside the Jeep or torque down the pins so tight that it would take a very determined thief to get them. You can also try a thread locker like the part # LT37420 to make them even harder to remove.

  • Replacement Roof Vent Seals for a 1969 Holiday Rambler
  • I have a solution to your leaking roof vents. Unfortunately, we do not carry a replacement seal for your roof vents. I can give you two options that might work for your trailer. First, is to replace the whole roof vent. For this we will need the measurements of the vent to make sure you can get the correct vent. Most of the standard vents that are installed in trailer measure 14-1/4 x 14-1/4 inches. However, some older model trailers have had different size vents. In these cases,...

  • The Loctite Windshield Repair Kit, # LT37613, is for fixing small bull's eye cracks or chips in windshields. It will not fix a hole in a dual pane window. To fix a hole in a dual pane window, I recommend contacting a glass repair professional.

  • Is Loctite RTV 5920 Copper Silicone Gasket Maker # LT37466 Suitable for Use on a Turbo
  • I checked with my technical contact at Loctite about your application for their RTV 5920 Copper Silicone Gasket Maker, part # LT37466, between header and turbo on your 1996 Impala six speed. My contact advised that so long as this silicone/copper gasket maker is used within its specified temperature and gap size limits it should be fine for use as you intend. This product is suitable to seal both gases and fluids and works best when filling gaps between mating surfaces that measure between...

  • Troubleshooting Wear On Folding Hitch And Recommendations For Hardware
  • If your bolts are getting loose, I recommend using Loctite Threadlocker 262 - High Strength - Up to 3/4" Nuts/Bolts - 0.20-Fl-Oz Tube # LT37420 and torquing your bolts to the manufacturer specs. The Loctite will keep the bolts from coming loose and prevent further wear because of loose hardware. If you need to replace the unit you currently have due to the oblong holes, I recommend the Fulton Fold-Away Coupler Hinge Kit for 3" x 3" Tongue - Bolt On - Up to 5,000 lbs # FHDPB330301. ...

  • Recommended Parts to Re-Install Lock Mechanism on 1997 Thule Rooftop Cargo Box
  • Thule does not supply the cargo box lock mounting rivets as replacement parts; this is because these are not intended to be removed. But you certainly can substitute other hardware, and that does not necessarily even have to be rivets, to re-install the lock assembly on your '97 Thule cargo box. Since this hardware will see some exposure to the elements I suggest that you select stainless-steel bolts, washers and nuts. Your local full-service hardware store should have a decent assortment...

  • Trailer Brake and Turn Signals Not Working on One Vehicle But Working on the Other Vehicle
  • The issue with your boyfriends trailer lights still sounds like a ground issue, but there are a few things he can check. He needs to make sure that on both the connector on his truck and the trailer plug is clean and free of any corrosion. I recommend using a dielectric grease, # LT37534, once the plug and connecter have been cleaned and inspected. The grease will prevent corrosion and eliminate water contamination. If the trailer plug and vehicle connecter have check out and are...

  • Can the Locktite Sleeve Retainer 640 be used on a International Tractor with a 966 Diesel Engine
  • I have spoken with my contacts at Locktite and they have informed me that the Locktite # LT37424 is rated for use on cylinder sleeves. Additionally, there are 2 conditions that have to be met before you consider using this product. 1. That there would be no oxygen contact with the Locktite product. 2. There has to be metal to metal contact. I believe this might be the case for your situation, but I am not sure if it is applicable on the counterbore area. Locktite is applicable...

  • Do Axle U-Bolt Nuts Require Welding
  • Spot welding the axle nuts on a trailer would be overkill. Most u-bolt nuts are just fine with the nyloc nuts that are used on them, or you could use Loc Tite like part # LT37643.

  • Will Loctite Windshield Repair Kit # LT37613 Work on a Small Chip, No Bull's Eye or Cracking
  • It could have been operator error or it may have been too cold (needs to be 50 degrees F or more for the Loctite Windshield Repair Kit # LT37613 goo to cure). Or they may have been expecting the crack to completely disappear. I have used this product on a very small chip with some cracking and it took care of most of it. Right after applying the product it didn't look like it did much but after a while there was only slight evidence that there was any sort of chip or crack in that location....

  • Recommended License Plate Holder For 2009 Mini Clubman When Using Trailer Hitch
  • When a hitch like part # C11387 is installed the receiver winds up in the middle of the license plate location so customers are faced with either relocating the plate or removing it. I do have a solution for you though. I recommend the Hidden Hitch Fold Down License Plate Holder, part # 8802. That way, the plate stays in one location and is simply folded down when you need to use the hitch. The 8802 will work great if the hitch receiver does not protrude out much through the bumper on...

  • Electric RV Steps Vibrate When Closing After Installing New Motor
  • I am not sure what model steps or motor you currently have, but there are a few reasons why there might be some vibration when closing the step. The first thing I recommend doing is making sure the new motor is mounted in such a way that it is making proper and secure contact with the gear plate, which is what will provide a ground connection. A weak ground connection can lead to the vibration and otherwise less than ideal motor operation for the step assembly. Also make sure that the...

  • Available Products for Sealing RV Sink Drain
  • If the sink in your 1996 Jayco pop-up camper trailer is leaking where the drain and sink bottom join together then you can use plumber's putty to re-seal it unless something is actually broken. This material is typically grey in color and can be found at any local hardware store. It remains soft and flexible (it does not dry or cure to a solid condition like a glue or caulk) so it keeps a good seal. If you also need to seal the sink's outer mounting flange to the countertop you can usually...
