Kyle, I added loctite on this route. I generally prefer not to use it on the FA (new bolts). That's because new placements usually develop some wiggle room under the hangers as the rock beneath them wears, requiring further tightening to fix spinning hangers. Loctite or lock-nuts can make subsequent tightening of nuts problematic for wedge type anchor (i.e. disengaging the wedges). May 26, 2016

Nbrown, do you ever put loctite on the hanger threads? seems like it might make life a tiny bit easier? or better yet nyloc nuts? both are a very easy solution to bolts backing out. May 26, 2016
