Do people use any sort of thread lock compound on link screws? I have an Ocean classic mesh bracelet that a screw fell out on while riding a motorcycle. Admittedly, the vibration must have played a part. Fortunately the sleeve of my leather jacket trapped the watch otherwise my Chronospace Military would have fallen off my wrist.

I replaced it and torqued all the remaining screws to what I felt was tight. I was thinking about some blue loctite (removable) but what is the consensus on this?

Cheers to the forum! :lingsrock:

Thanks Roff and Tom, the 222 sounds good, straight red (271) requires heat to remove, so I think the 222 purple looks like the better choice.
