Default What is torque seal

Yet another tip from my French friend.....

Wick stock stuff called Torque Seal, part number F900. It comes in a small tube for about $2.

After torquing up important nuts and bolts you put a small bead of this stuff from the nut or bolt head to the surrounding metal. It dries hard and cracks if the nut moves. So when you look at the bolt during an annual or preflight, you can be sure that it hasn't moved since you torqued it.

Very cool.

I've seen that stuff on bolt heads and such but never knew what it was or where to get it.

Thanks!!!

A little drop of epoxy will do the same thing for visual reference. Use LocTite or similiar for insurance.
