This is so much better to use than the firm set locking liquids; Loc-Tite blue/red. It won't cause threads to strip out if you have to remove a screw/bolt and it can be run in/out several times before needing to be re-applied. It also keeps heads from stripping out while trying to remove a screw/bolt. I use it on RC helicopters and cars, automotive and home projects. Most recently it was used on bolts for a backyard canopy assembly. I pre-applied it to the bolts and it was ready to go in a minute or two. I haven't tried it yet on a motorcycle (Harley) so I don't know if it will take the place of Blue thread-lock or not... I wouldn't use it in place of Red thread-locker on a Harley though.

I've been using VC-3 for over 30 years (though it was unavailable for a few years) and it is a useful and convenient alternative to hard anaerobic thread lockers. It can't provide the break-away performance of anaerobics, and it shouldn't be used where service procedures call for them, but it excels in imparting vibration resistance to screws. I use it for the small screws in laptops, and for accessory mountings on motorcycles. It lets the parts be adjusted after assembly without losing their vibration resistance, and it can be pre-applied long in advance of assembly. Oil on the mating threads does not inhibit performance.

If you need a reusable thread sealer on screws or bolts exposed to a fluid environment, this is the product you need. Easier to use than Loctite and was the product recommended by the OEM on a riding mower transaxle rebuild I did. I know it is also used by the auto industry. If you've ever come across screws with a red sealant already on the threads, it's probably this product.

My only beef with this product is the price. It's an acrylic blend. I don't think an entire set of acrylic nails put on in a salon would cost as much.

With that being said. I love this product. I just want a solution for bolts that tend to loosen over time to vibration. And Locktite seems too aggressive for that. Also, once Locktite breaks free, that's it you have lost the benefit. This stuff just keeps holding and holding.

I wish I would have known about this product many years ago.

Thanks for your time.

This is one of those products which goes beyond "a little dab'll do ya" into "you'll almost certainly need much less than you think at first" territory.

I use it for screws on rifle scope mounts, and with pivot and pocket clip screws for knives. So far, it works as well as standard "blue" threadlocker, but can be adjusted without needing to be replaced.

I highly recommend Vibra-TITE for these sorts of uses.

A simple brush stroke is all it takes to assure that body fasteners, non-engine bolts, etc. will not vibrate out. I use it sparingly and can usually get two or three insert/removal cycles before it is worn off. Makes every bolt/nut like a "Nylok" nut. One bottle will last me a year or more, and I use it frequently.

I like this product and it is a great value! I needed to bolt the seat on my boat, and saw that commercial on loctite, I found VC3 here on Amazon when I did a search for it. It was a much better price and i gave it a try. It has worked great. It won't cause threads to strip out if you have to remove a screw/bolt and it can be run in/out several times before needing to be re-applied. It also keeps heads from stripping out while trying to remove a screw/bolt. Try this product too, it is good around the house.

Got this originally for a set screw on a bicycle derailleur and it performed perfectly. I've since used this on a bunch of misc. screws and love it. It's easy to apply, works as described. For casual use, this little tube should last a long time.
