    I am trying to replace my wife's nylon straps on her pros with the bungie kit - I am having a devil of a time removing the original nylon sraps. Does anyone have any tips on breaking the Loctite seal?
    - if I cannot break the seal by striking it, can I snap it by applying a c-clamp or other method?

    Try a little heat - a few seconds with a lighter flame against the screw will normally break the Loctite.

    Thanks TN and Blair -
    the Youtube video was helpful - the vice grip positioning and the wrist snap with the wrench did the trick!
