    I have a cb supertuck holster, and while I really like it as a carry rig for my Glock 27, the screws keep coming undone. Should I use locktite and screw it back together so it stops unscrewing itself? thoughts.....

    Some blue Loctite should get it fixed.

    A small dab of blue loctite and the problem will be solved.

    The screws on my comptac mag pouch wouldn't stay tight for anything. Loctite solved it. I went ahead and did the screws on my holster as well just for good measure.

    Before you locktite them down, put the holster on and adjust the clips so they are even with the top of your belt. Properly adjusted, you will notice the clips do not appear straight when the holster is laying flat on a table. You will now have the correct angle to use when you locktite them down.

    Make sure you use blue locktite and not the red stuff. Your holster wouldn't like the heat level needed to break red locktite.

    I might contact crossbreed first. Could be a simple fix, and I prefer not to alter my carry gear unless I dont have any other options.

    Non-permanent Loctite works great for me. I originally just snugged them up every week or so, but after losing a screw I went to the Loctite solution.

    On my Comptac, using blue loctite, and NOT reefing on the screws, allows the clips to move without the screws coming out. Couple months of daily carry like this and all is good. The screw holes in the Comptac clips are countersunk, don't know about the CB.

    Yes, blue loctite would be the correct item to use.
    I would say to you though, to clean all surfaces to be loctited with some sort of solvent.

    Tighten them every two weeks. Should be fine.

    Better be careful, green Loctite® is for bearing race installations (unless something has changed). I installed green on a couple bolts to hold a transmission plate once, heating with a torch, still broke the heads off all 4 bolts trying to remove them.
