Broadheads keep unscrewing in quiver: time to Loctite?
« on: November 07, 2018, 06:45:29 PM »
I'm shooting Wac'Em 4 blades in a Tight Spot 3 arrow quiver. Whenever I hike, (or even transport my bow in its case), the broadheads unscrew themselves from the inserts in my arrows. Major PITA as I either have crazy-sharp blades floating around (best case) or the whole broadhead falls apart and I lose it all together (worst case). I'm careful how I place the broadheads in the quiver--they don't touch and aren't levering on eachother, but still, they always end up loose/unscrewed. I haven't had this problem with the other replaceable-blade broadheads (Muzzy) that I used before.

Has anyone else shooting Wac'Ems has this issue? I'm on my second 4 -pack and keep having the same problem. I have tightened them down nicely, and made sure the beveled metal ring is oriented properly when attaching the broadhead. I'm debating adding a drop of blue loctite to keep them in place, but am worried about damaging the inserts when I need to change broadheads/replace blades. Has anyone put loctite their broadheads before? How much and which color did you use, and did it work out?

try a little wrap of white plumber's tape.
holds my field tips and broadheads securely in the inserts
chasin' chrome, fur or Titleists.

Another option is string wax. Just rub a little on your threads.
Usually sticky enough to help hold them and wont be a pain to remove them from the arrow later.

Thanks for all the helpful suggestions. I'm looking forward to keeping those broadheads in place!
