Hey guys,

I just started wearing my 372, last week I was in the pub and was taking it off to show it to my mate and my mate had pointed out to me that my lug screw had popped out. At that time I was a bit wasted I thought I didn't tighten it properly during strap change, so during the weekend I have re-tighten it and now is popping out again. At the moment is the top one, anyone experienced any issues with this or have a got a bad lug screw?

Cheers

Phil

If not, that might be causing your problem. The tube will prevent a tight strap from loosing the screw during normal movement.

I have not experienced this problem with my 372, although I do used tubes in all of my straps.

Best of luck!

Be Well,
Joe

Try using a little Loctite on the screw, that should take care of it.
Good luck!!

Yeah. I was wondering is it because of the tube, I couldn't get the tube out on my OEM strap so I left it stuck in there. I will give it a go, thanks for the advice

Not as strong as blue. You don't need much for retention for lug screws, they aren't subject to much vibration.

To make sure he doesn't lose his watch over the weakest link.

An easy way to get the tube out of the oem strap is using the screwdriver to push it out. It has always worked for me. Alternatively you could buy extra tubes. The tubes should help prevent your screw from coming out. Cheers.
