    Yes, if you're having problems you can use #242 Loctite. Still, keep an eye on them after that for a short time. If you have further problems you're best to return the bow to your dealer for a look-see and possible replacement of the cams.

    I do not recommend any thread lock. My silencer had an issue with the prev. owner putting loc tite on every screw on the bow thanks to Joel in customer service I was able to replace all of the screws that got stripped. If you feel you must use something I would suggest a dab of clear silicone.

    Good possibility the previous owner used a High strength loctite. Using 242 loctite should do the trick with out any issues. But on the note of using clear silicone that will work just as well.
