Default Stay Tight R/C Screws

Hello Everyone,

In the next few weeks I will be offering screws that will not require a chemical locking adhesive like loctite. My product is a reusable screw, with a bonded locking element already on the screw which can be removed and reinserted over 20 times while retaining its torque value. This product is far superior to the liquid based locking elements everyone is used to for several reasons.

1) No cure time - Insert and go
2) Reusable
3) No messy liquids
4) Prevents stripping
5) Consistent torque values
6) Mil-Spec Grade application
7) Infinite Shelf Life
8) Withstands up to 270 Degrees

If anyone is intereted in these screws, I'm accepting orders now. Let me know the size you need, quantity, and I will quote you a price. If you are not satisfied, I will give you your money back.

Yes, the screws are very high quality screws grade 12.9 which have been tested by other users on this site. They come with a patch locking material which is placed on the screws through a manufacturing process. Compared to loctite, this is a far superior product. You will not be disappointed, the R/C industry doesn't know this product exists and actually predates Loctite by 30+ years!

How many times can the screw be removed and reinstalled before this new compound will no longer hold the screw tight?

What is the cost difference per screw vs a normal screw?

A consistent torque can be obtained 20-25 removals. The screw will hold until over 50 removals or more.

The cost for the steel screws run .80 to 1.00 each. The aluminum screws will be in the same cost range also.

Give me about an hour and I'll post some pics. I'm waiting to receive the soon. I do plan to offer kits similar to Tony's screws. I'm starting with the most common sizes first. My biggest problem is not the product but changing the industry mindset from using loctite, threadlocker, etc to a consisten quality product.

I hope the screws have good quality Hex,s, at $1.00 a screw you would not want one to strip.

The screw grades are 12.9 and are great screws. No failures in the past.

Do u have any manufacturing certificate for the screws? I've dealt with M24 G8.8 bolts and they broke when my men hammer tightened.

I've used this type of screw before in a kit build. They work very well.

They will have a somewhat limited appliation in R/C kit builds, as you would want these (or loctite on screws) only on metal to metal connections...so you wouldn't want a full kit of this type...it'd need to be a mix.

Also will be killer for clutch bell screws.

What size and type of screws will I need for the clutch bell screws? I'll add those in next week for processing.

Loctie turns into a power after drying for a while.
