never used loctite

I've installed / used several sets of ODI's and never used loctite on the clamp bolts.

After losing a few of the plastic end cap assemblies, I now use just a dab of glue (i.e. liquid nails) on the plastic "cone" of the end cap piece before i put it into the bar. This is enough to hold it in place, but allows removal if necessary.

Loctite + small bolts = stripped bolt head waiting to happen

Of course you could heat it up to break the bond of the Loctite each time you need to remove them, and avoid the stripped bolts, but that kind of defeats the ease of use of lock-ons.

Grease will do fine. Don't tighten down too much either. They don't need it.
