New Loctite product
My parts supplier just handed me a brochure for Loctite brand threadlocker sticks. Thats right, its in a stick kinda like chapstick. You twist the cap on the end and out it comes.
They advertise "the first solid form of threadlocking, thread sealing, gasketing, and anti-sieze products..."
Anyways I just ordered a few to try out and wanted to pass this along.

The only thing I found wrong with that thing so far is that when you lay it down and working in front of a fan because it is so damn hot it rolls away. lol

Ive been playing with the blue paste for a few months now. The really nice thing about it, is that it doesn't dry out as fast. The only downfall I've seen is you have to work a little harder to get the loctite on the threads, since it doesn't run down them. I've been just running the threads across the top of the dispenser.

I've seen it at my Local autozone B4.

I guess I dont get out enough...I thought it was new.
I like the no mess factor, and it seems I can save a lot of space in my tool kit with the smaller tubes.

I have always used it on my ski! (for the last year or so) It does not last as long as the liquid but is way easier to work with when laying under the ski or in the engine compartment. (when I say last as long I mean it gets used up a lot faster than the liquid)

Been using them for over a year at work and on the toys, and i love it. Best part is that the tip never dries up!

Don't feel bad dude. You aren't the only one. I thought it was new too.
Looks cool. I can't tell you how many tubes I have spilt over the years.

If you still are into the liquid....someone from the Loctite/Permatex corp. waited for the patent to run out on Loctite, started their own company, and now make the same thing at half the price under the Ritelock name.
