It is more work than meets the eye. On a bolt for which Loctite is recommended you must remove the bolt reapply the Loctite and then torque correctly. Turning a bolt with Loctite breaks the bond and renders the Loctite useless. When I see guys reefing on their sprocket bolts before a ride I just shake my head.
