The "Heat" is a very good tip, I have been doing the same thing, You can also use a heat gun or small "Lighter Type" torch. (keep away from plastics) One thing I want to add to those who struggle with hardware coming loose. As said above, more loctite is not the answer. If you clean your screws/threads with acetone it will make the loctite bond better. With Loctite, oils and grease are the Darkside
If you need to clean your female threads, I use pipe cleaners from Walgreens. They have the ones with small stiff nylon pins that do a great job of breaking down old loctite, they also work great for cleaning out your arms so the hingpins move freely.
