Is Threadlocker Required To Install A Trailer Hitch Receiver?


Im looking into getting a CURT C13119 hitch and was wondering if any Loctite or similar adhesive is required for the bolts??


Expert Reply:

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.
