The shaded areas of these diagrams indicate where this threadlocker should be applied in various types of threaded assemblies.

Diagram of threadlocker placement
Diagram of threadlocker placement

Threadlocker 262 is applied as a liquid to the threads of screws, nuts and bolts before assembly. The red, high-strength formula keeps connections securely tightened, even during the most severe vibration, shock and stress. Threadlocker also seals out air, water and grime to prevent rust or other corrosion from forming, ensuring that the connected assemblies will remain sound for a long time. Uncorroded assemblies come apart easier and can be reused.

This threadlocker requires heat (500F) to free parts for disassembly with hand tools. Five minutes' application of a torch may be required. Disassemble while parts are still hot.

This threadlocker is anaerobic (hardens in the absence of air) and requires contact with an active metal to cure. Active metals (those that tarnish, corrode or rust) include brass, copper, bronze, iron, soft steel and nickel. If both parts to be joined are made of inactive materials, Loctite Klean 'N Prime primer must be applied to one of the surfaces for curing to occur. Inactive materials include plated parts, stainless steel, zinc, galvanized steel, magnetite steel, pure aluminum, titanium, magnesium, gold, silver, plastic, cadmium, Iconel, natural or chemical black oxide and anodized aluminum.

Klean 'N Prime can speed the cure rate of Threadlocker 262. This is especially helpful when you are applying the adhesive to any material, active or inactive, in colder temperatures (below 70 F).

The instructions and accompanying videos on your site made this a DIY installation that came out perfectly.


Used it for the towing equipment on our Jeep and it has done it's job by keeping all the bolts in the same position. Would highly recommend


Worked as expected.


I ordered multiple Roadmaster products from to rebuild a used Roadmaster Sterling towbar and prepare my car for its first time towing behind the motorhome. The etrailer people are great to work with, the prices are good, delivery is quick, and free shipping for all of my orders. The technical support at both etrailer and Roadmaster is the best.


For the installation the instructions were good, but watching some videos made it much easier to take apart a brand new car. All went well. Installed on a 2020 Chevy Equinox 2.0


Bought this product after watching the video how to install base plates on 2014 Honda CR-V. If you read the instructions talks about checking the bolts periodically for torque, now I don't know how many people are going to spend 4 hours pulling off the front bumper to this. So for peace of mind use this product so bolts won't come loose.


I have used the LocTite products for many years. They make several grades of thread locking fluids, each appropriate for specific uses. Their products do exactly what they say they will; and will secure threaded parts from vibration or lock them together permanently. Your toughest choice will be in determining which product is most appropriate for your use. My recommendation is to start with the lowest strength and work you way up as needed. Just remember that without special tools, permanent means permanent with this product. The lower grades are very strong in preventing vibratory loosening.


This stuff works! Used it to install my trailer hitch bolts.



Used on bolts for trailer hitch receiver.Still holding tight after 1-1/2 yrs.


Reinstalling clutch, equipment manufacturer specifies using LOCTITE 262 on clutch reinstall. Unable to locate 262 except in large quantities in my area. Etrailer had the small quantity 262 and responded to my order immediately. Completed clutch reinstall and equipment is running fine. Thanks Etrailer


Loctite used on base plate installation. Worked well as always.


Needed Loctite 262 to assemble my Harley Road King primary. Great service and fast shipping. Will buy from etrailer in the future.


I am so glad I came across, They have what I need in stock, and show you how to use and or install the product.
They have great prices and fast shipping, What else could you ask for!


Easy install and a HUGE difference in control. Along with the stabilizer you cannot go wrong.


Loctite is always a good thing!


Product worked as advertised. Can't ask for more than that. was very good at expediting my order. Thanks


Excellent product used it several times on some small nuts and bolts.


Product was exactly as advertised, and as I wanted. Delivered as stated. etrailer is a great company to work with. This is the second vehicle I have outfitted, and they have had great videos and directions with their products.


Perfect size for replacing 24 wheel studs on my 1975 Argosy.


Was easy to install and stabilized the RV significantly.


Perfect installation. works as advertis ed..


Great product. Instructions easy to follow


Loctite worked great for front sight installation on a Glock. Service / delivery impeccable and timely.


Bolts have not fallen off yet... lol They are all still tight.


The parts were as described during the purchase phase of my order. The prices and quality of parts were very good and de]livery and packaging efficient. I will refer this supplier to my friends!


It's Loctite folks, what's to say, it works as it should.

  • Is there a Way to Lock D-Ring Shackles to Front Of Jeep Wrangler Bumper
    Most Jeep guys leave the D-rings inside the Jeep or torque down the pins so tight that it would take a very determined thief to get them. You can also try a thread locker like the part # LT37420 to make them even harder to remove.

  • Securing Axle U-Bolts With Loctite
    Though it is not completely necessary to use something like Loctite's Threadlocker # LT37420, there wouldn't be any adverse affects either. Most U-Bolt kits do come with lock nuts making them more secure than standard nuts, but you can definitely apply # LT37420 to completely secure their purchase on the U-Bolts.

  • Anti-seize Product Recommendation to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2007 Honda Fit Sport
    For Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24776 for your 2007 Honda Fit Sport there isn't a specific recommendation for anti-seize products for the installation hardware. Loctite # LT37616 would work fine. But if you are talking about thread locker then there is just one thing to consider: how difficult do you want it to be to remove the hardware? If you use blue Loctite # LT37643 then the hardware can still be removed using hand tools. But if you use red Loctite # LT37420 then power tools would have...

  • What Color or Strength Loctite Do I Need to Install Wheel Studs?
    Yes, you will want to use the Loctite Threadlocker 242 - Medium Strength - 1/4" to 3/4" Nuts/Bolts item # LT37418 to install the Redline Replacement wheel studs item # 25-53. This is the blue one you will be able to remove your studs in the future if you need to replace them. The red Loctite Threadlocker 262 - High Strength - Up to 3/4" Nuts/Bolts - 0.20-Fl-Oz Tube item # LT37420 is the one you would either want to use or stay away from if you don't plan on removing the bolt.

  • Installing A Replacement Foot Pad For Lippert Hydraulic Ground Control Level System

You are correct with the placement of the washer and o-rings.

  • Troubleshooting Wear On Folding Hitch And Recommendations For Hardware
    If your bolts are getting loose, I recommend using Loctite Threadlocker 262 - High Strength - Up to 3/4" Nuts/Bolts - 0.20-Fl-Oz Tube # LT37420 and torquing your bolts to the manufacturer specs. The Loctite will keep the bolts from coming loose and prevent further wear because of loose hardware. If you need to replace the unit you currently have due to the oblong holes, I recommend the Fulton Fold-Away Coupler Hinge Kit for 3" x 3" Tongue - Bolt On - Up to 5,000 lbs # FHDPB330301.

  • Is Threadlocker Required To Install A Trailer Hitch Receiver?
    To install the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # C13119 or any hitch, there is not a requirement in the instructions to use any threadlocker, but I personally think it is wise. The instructions say to periodically check to ensure fasteners are tight, but I don't believe most people actually do that and Loctite Threadlocker 262 - High Strength - Up to 3/4" Nuts/Bolts - 0.20-Fl-Oz Tube # LT37420 would be a good idea.

  • Should Loctite Be Used to Install a Curt Hitch on a 2014 Honda Odyssey
    There's no reason you couldn't use Loctite like part # LT37420 when installing the Curt hitch part # C13068 but as long as you torque the install hardware down to the proper torque figures in the instructions you wouldn't have any problems with the bolts loosening. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well.

  • Is Thread Locker Recommended Installation Hardware of etrailer Brand e98906 Trailer Hitch
    If the # e98906 hitch installation hardware is torqued according to the instructions, it won't be necessary to use # LT37420 thread locker. You can certainly do so if you wish, however please note that the torque specs mentioned in the installation instructions are for dry torque. If thread locker is used you'd use different torque specs (wet torque) which can be looked up online dependent on the size and class of the fastener.

  • Replacing Foot Pad On Lippert 6-Point Level-Up System - 132 Ft-lb Torque Requirement + Loctite
    I understand your concern. I called Lippert to verify that the 132 Ft-lb of torque and use of Locktite is still valid. They said that was the requirement and there were no alternative instructions. The assumption is that this is the method they used for installation and that by removing the foot pad you will run the risk of damaging the cylinder. If you need to remove it in the future the only way to release it after red Loctite is used would be by applying heat. I also verifed the order...

  • Butyl Tape To Seal Trailer Roof Panel Joint
    The LaSalle Bristol XTRM Butyl Tape part # 344270341411-1 can definitely be used to seal the joint on the roof your cargo trailer. Butyl tape is used to seal off many roof accessories like trailer vents and fans. Since the butyl tape is pre-formed it is easier to install and get a water tight precise seal compared to some of the liquid sealants that can be more difficult to maneuver. The adhesive on the tape forms a bond with the surface that improves over time. This particular butyl tape...

  • Brake Assembly Stud Rotates when Trying to Tighten the Nut
    You might be able to drive out the one stud that is rotating, coat it with red Loctite such as # LT37420, let it cure, and then give it another try. Or you could tack weld it to the brake assembly to prevent it from turning. The threads must be a different pitch or size since the old ones are not fitting the new shocks. What I would do is take one of the new shocks or mounts or bolts with you to a hardware store and try out some nuts to find one that fits (unless Dexter can provide the...

But you may need to tighten your adjustable anchor points as shown in the demonstration video that I attached (about the 5 minute mark). You may want to use some sort of sealant such as Loctite Threadlocker 262 - High Strength - Up to 3/4" Nuts/Bolts - 0.20-Fl-Oz Tube # LT37420 to keep the anchors where you want them.

    The Curt Class III trailer hitch for your Pathfinder, part # C13126 would utilize nuts that are welded up into the frame member.
