    Thread Lock on Rangeman ?

    Hi,

    I recently changed the strap on my Rangemen to the carbon fiber (fibre) type and I was worried about stripping the relatively weak plastic threads.

    I am now a little concerned about whether they are tight enough to withstand vibration (using power tools etc).

    Has anyone here used anything to lock the threads such as Loctite 425 ?

    If so what did you use and what was your experience please ?

    Thanks.

    I'm not sure I understand what you mean... When I took off the strap on Rangeman, it looked quite sturdy and well fixed. It uses screws with long bars instead of spring bars, which is really good. Only negative is the plastic lugs, which in few cases broke, but I don't see that happening.

    What I am concerned about is the screws potentially coming when exposed to prolonged vibration.

    Thread lock is widely used to lock screws or other fasteners in place where shock and / or vibration may be present.

    We use Loctite 243 at work on metal threaded holes with metal screws or bolts.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Sorry about the mistake in my post. I meant to say "coming out".

    Hmm, it's hard to say. Of course you could use some Loctite if you think it would help, but I haven't seen anyone mentioning that screws came out, I personally wouldn't bother with Loctite. I feel like it's secure enough... And I'm not sure what kind of effect that would make on your arm/hand if vibrations were so strong that screws come out?

    OK thanks. You are probably right.

    i do see some loctites on metal-cased g-shocks (frogman/gw5000), but none that i can tell from plastic-cased gs (rangeman etc)
    the plastics should act like thread lockers in some ways (think nylon lock nuts)
    but i could be wrong being a noob at G-Shocks :)

    Check the Loctite website. I could have sworn I read somewhere that it causes deterioration when used with plastics.

    The other concern would be with potentially stripping the screw heads on any subsequent screw removal if the Loctite does too good of a job.

    I only mentioned Loctite as it is probably more well know. The Tamiya product I purchased seems to be OK on some plastics

    You may be right about potential thread damage on screw removal.

    Thanks for your comments.
