Default What am I missing?

I purchased Loctite 567 recently because it is so highly recommended here. However, I have used Locktite 515 for years on cars, antique airplanes and my first RV. I get the teflon lubrication. Both are anerobic cure. 515 is for thin gasketing. I clock the fitting as needed without excess torque and count on the 515 to seal any thread voids. No leaks, so educate me why 515 is not another good option.

I see the referenced product is shipped from China. Is that where all Loctite is produced, or is there a risk of a 'knockoff'?

No. A few posts back Jim posted an eBay link for the product at about $6.50. I suspect that answers the question to the affirmative.

I have used Tite-Seal in the past http://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalo...clickkey=23262 but after reading through this thread I am now thinking I might want to switch to the Loctite 567.

For another data point ... I used Loctite 567 on the aluminum fittings that screw into the RV-12's brake master cylinders and had multiple leaks which after removing /cleaning/reapplication of the 567, still had the small seepage.

I decided to try Tite-Seal .... it solved the seepage issue. So a +1 for Tite-Seal from me.
