Default loose frames

Skated on the Simmons Rush boots and frames and after three kilometers the frames came loose from the boot.
Anyone suggest locktite to insure non movement in the future?
Thanks all

I'm not sure you need Loctite. If this is the first time you've skated it's likely the frame was not screwed on tight enough. happened with me and my new Riedell 120 boots, left nuts all over the rink causing a fall or two, I was livid.

If you do want to glue your plate, try Shoe Goo, brilliant stuff.

Loctite is pretty routine for frame bolts. I was surprised that the frame bolts that came with my Simmons customs did have not Loctite already applied. The bolts that came with my Powerslide frame did have Loctite as did all the others I can remember. I did not try using the Simmons bolts without Loctite.

four skates, four loose frames.
with locktite and all.
I have to go through a rough patch of road initially and i think its shaking the frames loose. I brought my tool with me to tighten the frames today. they came loose, after, on smooth pavement, i tightened up and had no problem.
Im guessing the bolts i purchased from simmons are to soft to tighten with the aluminum frames.
I am going to change bolts and see if this changes things.

I never use locktite but belleville washers instead. I buy them in bulk from McMaster. They not only fix vibration problems but they also fix alignment issues (crooked blocks or the use of wedges) that are common with exposed, tapped hole mounting blocks (Simmons, Pinnacle).

Well I am a hardware guy, have many washers, locktite (242, 262 etc etc).
Still frame bolts will come loose.

I have to admit, I am riding mostly at rough terrain (walking pad).

Nevermind, just found boots (Luigino) female screws are just low quality!
Too much play, I have new boots female screws are much better quality.

No more loose male bolts.........
