Hey guys, if this has already been covered I apoligize and would appreciate it if someone pointed me in the right direction. I'm gonna put sling swivels with studs on my synthetic stock Ruger 10/22, I did some research and read to add a little blue locktite to the threads. I got some blue 242 loctite from Lowes. Directions say not to use 242 on plastics, is this no good to use for my stock then? Which loctite should I use? Thanks guys/gals.

I've never used anything on any sling swivel studs, and never had any problems with them at all

They were easy to turn by hand, so I just wanted something to keep them solid, could be becaue of the Ruger stock or because of my swivel studs. I just used a tiny bit of Gorilla Glue since I had some laying around and I don't plan on removing the studs. Works like a charm. Thanks for the recommendation Macon, I'll remember that if I get any future projects with threadlocking and plastic.

Another way to tighten loose fitting screws is to use Teflon tape on the threads

My house is 115 years old, and has a lot of the original door knobs and hardware, so if a screw gets loose, it's nearly impossible to find one the right size.

Good to know Snyper, I'm gonna have to pick up a roll in case I need anything like this again, thanks.
