Failure to follow the installation instructions will void warranty!
Normal fluidic thread locker is not designed to be applied under water and attempts to apply it under water will ultimately fail. Applying regular thread locker to the thread on dry land and allowing it to cure before the screw is mounted underwater will not work either, as there will be no adhesion.
If for any reason you have removed the propeller underwater do not reuse the screws when mounting again under the water. Please contact Flexofold for replacement screws that have the pre-applied thread locker.
When reusing the screws out of the water, make sure to apply a medium strength version of thread locker such as Loctite 243 (blue).
Never use a thread locker on the shaft nut. It will be difficult to dismount again.
