    I just received the Bestem removable prop-guards. It is supplied with the longer screws needed.

    1. What kind of wrench/driver is used to remove the screws? what size?

    2. Instructions call for applying thread lock to all screws. Is this a good idea? Which kind? I understand that there are issues with the plastic.

    Thanks

    Larry

    Screws use a 2.0mm hex driver or Allen wrench and as far as lock tite I don't use any . Some use the blue but never the other .
    I have never had a problem not using any and really think as easy as these screw head's strip I won't never !
    I do check all the screws occasionally but that's it .
