    Screw bars unscrewing

    I recently had an issue with the screw bar on my clasp undoing on its own. I assumed it was because it was a cheaper eBay strap used on my work watch

    However, I just saw that the screw bar holding the strap on my 1,400.00 Helson stingray had worked itself about 80% out.

    How do I handle this issue? Do I just tighten it down daily? Is there a better fix. I am more accustomed to spring bars.

    Loctite! I think you want the blue . It's not as strong. But make sure of that one.

    Yes, the blue loctite is what you want. The red is the permanent.

    You can also use clear nail polish which has worked very well for me. Loctitie is great but you have to heat it up to get it to release.

    I change straps often. Will the blue loc-tite work for me?

    If you feel the need for Loc Tite on your bracelet use low strength 222ms (green).

    It is specified for screws under 1/4" diameter

    The reason I suggested clear nail polish is due to it not being a pain to remove. I have even used it on a kitchen tap screw that kept backing out, I put it on the screw 1 year ago and it's still holding.

    As a side note, :D one would require a wife or girlfriend to obtain such rarity. Or man up and walk into cosmetic stores....
