I run an AFCO pullbar and I keep having problems with the allen head bolt loosening. This week becuase of my poor driving skill I only completed about 10 laps and when checking car over this week I noticed the two halves of the pullbar already had free play in them, meaning the bolt had loosened. I had this problem last year and used loctite to no avail....I really tightend the bolt this last time and used loctite, but it still loosend up after only one night? Any ideas, or experiences with this?

Make sure that the bolt is clean before you loctite it. If it has any oil or anti seize on it it will not work.
