    I'm going to install a "saddlebag" for my Marco Polo receiver which involves loosening both legs on my P3A. I want to use some type of thread locker on the screws but I've seen that blue loctite damages the plastic so no go there. I've heard that there's a plastic friendly version of loctite but I haven't seen it at my local Home Depot.

    I've also seen that people use nail polish as a thread locker but no details as to a brand or type that should be used.

    I found a product called Permatex that is supposed to be plastic friendly and is meant for auto repair. Has any one used this?

    Threadlockers : Permatex® Plastic Threadlocker

    I'm also considering installing a set of strong arms so whatever I choose would need to stand up to the force of the motors.

    Any thoughts?
