    What brand Loctite to use?

    Just curious what brand loctite everyone is using. I put red Permatex on my iBR bolts a couple days ago, and had to remove the iBR last night. Bolts didn't take any extra force at all. That Permatex stuff is crap.

    I always use the loctite brand stuff, only cause I have a bunch of it on hand. I like using the "sticks" they sell. It may just be my experience, but I find it holds better than the liquid.

    red is for bigger bolts and you must use heat to remove it
    blue is for smaller bolts/nuts

    You can use either color on either bolt..it doesnt matter if its big or small..Red is super strenght and is used for bolts that need extra bite were as blue is medium duty and is used for bolts that may need to be removed in do time...size really doesnt matter..

    243 blue on stainless has 1/2 the holding strength as steel
    and blue 242 has 1/3 the strength on stainless vs mild steel

    Where do you guys buy the 232 and 242? All I see at Autozone is Permatex.
