Last Call: Color Bind Edition

Red versus Blue is an age-old political game, but who know it affected our favorite liquid lockwasher too? I wonder who at Loctite has such a diabolical sense of humor?

      Actually isn’t that how a CVT works?

        Escher Engineering applied for patents, but they can’t find their patent lawyer. He said he’d only go upstairs to get something…

    This! Red Loctite in a blue tube? I mean, come on now. I had exactly the same dilemma a few weeks ago, as I’d lost the package with the details and ended up looking up the part number online to make sure I had the right stuff for the job.

      There is no red Loctite in this picture, but red Permatex.
      It’s even worse:
      Loctite bottles and tubes for thread lockers are always red.
      Loctite bottles and tubes for glues are always blue.
      Consequently, you can get “black Loctite” in a red bottle, and in a blue one.
      The first will harden well after you tightened the bolt (Loctite 2047), the latter will glue your bolt well before you’ve reached the bottom of the thread (Loctite 480).
