Valve extenders

I am thinking of adding 180 degree Valve extenders to my outside duels in order to make the installation of pressure monitors easier. Is it a good idea to put loc-tite to the valve stem when installing them?? Thanks for your responses.....Bob

I have the 180 extenders and have never used any loc-tite to keep them in place. Finger tight has been sufficient for the last 3 years.

You shouldn't need any Teflon tape either, but if you do use it, be careful not to overlap the end of the valve. The sensor threads will cut the tape off and the tiny pieces can get into the sensors air opening and make it give flaky readings. I learned that the hard way when I tried using the tape on a leaky connection. Turned out that I merely needed a new red seal in the sensor, which Pressure Pro sent me for free.

Caduceus, Gary is right on the money---you must be careful if if you elect to use Teflon tape, Ken...
