A little tip

I'm sure many here probably know this little tip already. But I'm also sure some don't.. If you've forgotten to purchase that expensive little bottle of lock-tite to create a secure bolt.. No need to panic... If you're married or have a live in. You have help in her purse. Just steal her nail polish & place a little on the threads and there you have it. A cheap alternative to lock-tite..

I also like a piece of fishing line wrapped around the nut It will turn the nut into a lock nut.
Or you could peen the top threads of the nut a little and it becomes a lock nut that way.

Just remember, NOTHING holds tighter than a good old cross-thread.
