    Hi Shaun,

    Do you have a Mk2 or Mk3?

    It's something we're aware of (working to solve), and is included in the "tips" on the fitting instructions:

    I also know that some have used Gorilla Glue as an alternative to Threadlock.

    Hope this helps.

    Paul

    Hi super mck,

    The situation should be improved with the Mk3, the female thread was modified slightly to improve the bite. A few users have still reported it loosening, which is why we still include those suggestions in the instructions.

    Have you tried any of those, electrical tape, threadlock, gorilla glue?

    if you use insulation tape it will last a lot longer than ptfe as it is stronger
