Auto Maintenance and More: When and Why to Use Purple Threadlocker
I have always been a firm believer in the products I sell. That being said, it is also important to me that my customers believe in them as well. In working with customer’s everyday, I always get the common question, “What is the difference between Red and Blue Threadlocker?,” but lately, more and more people are getting excited about our Purple Threadlocker, Loctite® 222™.
Loctite® Purple Threadlocker has many uses; from carburetor screws to eyeglasses to small screws on laptops. Due to its low strength, it can be removed with the same tool used to put the project together. It is available in an easy-to-use liquid application, which makes the product especially efficient with very small screw applications, less than ¼ inches in diameter. In the feedback we receive from customers, many use it on automotive maintenance and motorcycle maintenance applications such as carburetor screws and firearms. One customer said it “worked great for a crown knob that came loose from the stem” in reference to a wristwatch repair.
One user posted on Amazon that they used the product on their laptop computer because of several screw problems. The customer commented that Loctite® 222™ “was perfect to keep them [the screws] in, but still removable just in case I had to get back in there”.
Not Just for Vehicle Maintenance
Overall, this product has a broad array of uses to cater to many applications. Its low strength makes it perfect as it can be removed and resealed. Like all of our threadlockers, the purple increases safety, prevents loosening, leaks and corrosion. Long term, this means less money spent on visits to the repair shop.
