For some, threadlockers are a mystery. For others, they are an everyday tool. Often known by simply their color and the generic (but trademarked brand) name "Loctite," they provide a way of keeping threaded fasteners from vibrating loose. This article attempts to explain (without going into excruciating detail) how threadlockers work, discusses the three basic types of threadlockers and their respective uses, and also provides information on what brands are available for retail purchase. Links to manufacturer's websites are included.
