    Default Stopping loose heads

    What do you use on thread to keep Broadheads and Field Tips from loosening from the arrow/bolt?
    Used Loctite Blue in the past which I was happy with but have to clean threads if moving head to new arrow or bolt.
    Read string or bees wax works well.

    I don`t use anything.... When I am sitting waiting for game to come by, I just check them and if loose turn to tighten them by hand... I guess I do this often enough that it is never been an issue.

    Some broadhead manufacturers supply lock washers, if you can get the correct size this would work great for this purpose. You would have to sight in again though and check how the bow groups as you are adding weight now and depending on the washer specification your weight tolerance may not be great.

    Google McMaster Carr and check out lock washers there, this is a go to place for hardware where I work, it is really easy to sort through a lot of hardware to find out what you need.

    My field points used to do this a lot, I put string wax on the threads and hasn't been a problem since.

    I have seen some archers using small O rings or some have used a single wrap of Teflon tape.

    When needed, I use Teflon tape.
    It is clean & easy to use. And, it fills the thread gaps evenly, & thus maintains the arrow head properly aligned.

    At one time you could buy flat rubber washers or a stainless steel spring washer made for this. I may still have some left. Bought these from Anderson in Michigan, some of you old timers should remember this bow shop.
    Experience is what you gain when you didn't get what you wanted.

    Many are called but only a few are chosen.
