Right retainer bracket
1 Attachment(s)
Hey whats up guys. So my right retainer bracket has come off and the screws won't stay in to keep it in place. Do I need to use loctite or a similar compound on the screws so that they stay in their holes. This is really bothering me because everytime I take the bar out of the brackets the bracket bends. Here is a picture so that you guys know what I am talking about. please help!!!!:confused:

i would use one size bigger screws. that should be enough to fix that problems. perhaps you´ll have to drill a bit bigger holes in the bracket for the bigger screws.
or drill some holes and use some bolts with nuts.

I don't think bigger screws or bolts are a good solution since the hardware I have right now is the stock OEM screws. I am wondering if the gunk that is around some of the threads is maybe loctite and if all I need to do is cover the screws in loctite and screw them in. Let me know...thanks!

if the bracket comes off with the screws loctide will not help.
i think that the threads became too wide. then you need to make them smaller (i don´t know how that sould work i such a thin material) or you need to use wider screws that fit into the wider threads.

sorry for my bad english...
