I am having problems with a screw backing out on my 232. I've replaced the screw once due to it disappearing and
now, I am still having a problem with a screw coming loose. I am not certain if it's the same one. My questions are:

1. Is this a common problem with some Rad's?
2. Can a Loctite type product be used without too much residual problem with future strap changes?

Thank you for your thoughts in advance.

Pretty sure that little bugger should have an o-ring and if missing, that may be the cause. I've owned a lot of Radiomirs, and don't ever recall one of them coming loose on its own.

No ideas on Loctite but pretty sure there are less aggressive versions that might be suitable.

Loctite is an option, but use the low strength (purple) variety. It's a little harder to find than blue or red. If you have a watchmaker's supply near you it doesn't hurt to pick up a movement oiler. This is a small applicator that will help you to get a small amount of loctite onto the screw or screw hole.
