Just out of curiosity, why?

Ive been putting blue LocTite on them for longer than I can remember, and have done it on every revolver Ive owned since the first one backed out and tied up the gun, and never had any issues doing so. Never had one that had LocTite on it ever back out again either.

Remove the screw above the trigger with the cylinder closed.
This is another point that benefits from a dab of LocTite, especially with a heavy recoiling gun that gets shot a lot. I learned the hard way with my first Model 29 Smith during a reload. The cylinder just dropped off the gun when I went to put the rounds in. On inspection, the side plate screw that retained had worked loose and fallen out.
