    Loctite 24x
    For long term storage as you used only a drop from the bottle
    -don't allow be in touch with any metal, never-ever. Will start to harden entire bottle.
    -once at three month open the bottle and allow fresh air to enter, squeeze the bottle.
    solution start to harden when lack of oxygen.

Like the bolts that hold the rear carrier to my bicycle. It doesn't like plastic. Great stuff.
    Pros use nail varnish after knob is screwed down, easier to undo after nail varnish remover qtip scurbbing hard. But the knobs normally don't loosen off as they tighten with use, checking they are tight is still a good idea.

    That warning of touching metals only refers to clogging the tip of the tube not the whole Loctite screw-fastener bottle. Though they also worn not to get any material back into the bottle. Also not to keep it at fridge temperatures.
    All this is new. In the past Locticte even specifically advised to use a needle to open the tubes of virgin bottles and to stitch the needle even deep into the tube.

    Thank you for that update!

    I still got that stuff using the tube directly on metal and it still works after two decades...
