*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

FROM SKATELOG FORUM HOST KATHIE FRY IN MARCH OF 2020:
This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com
NEW OWNER AND ADMINISTRATOR: Jessica Wright

Ask DocSk8 (Expert Indoor Skate Building Advice) This forum is different then the other SkateLog forums in that it is not a discussion forum, but rather a place you can ask skate building expert Fred "DocSk8" Benjamin about building and repairing indoor speed, derby, and jamskate quad roller skates. Please start a new thread for each new question.

Default blue or green loc tite

one drop of blue or green period. The stop will be easy to adjust and will not vibrate loose.

Have you actually done this or is this just an idea... not that it is a bad one.
No stock in company yet. Here is a link to a special "Boot & Glove" version that would be good if the whole underside of the toe guard is covered:

I have not tried it, but if I used a toe guard, that would be my 1st effort at making it grip into position on the thread without putting it between the nut and the plate.

If they slide around and go down to the sides, the thin coating could be a good idea to help give better friction and keep it where it belongs.

Default it works.

one good drop and install and after it sets (about a hour) your stop problem is over. loctite dries from the absence of air.

You are not the first one to suggest Loc tite on the toe stop, however it's not my favorite method...

I used a little locktite. I did not put much. 2 threads coated, threaded into the boot, and 2 threads covered to secure the lock nut. This was on my daughters' Hard Candys. Working good so far.
