I recently switched from the rubber feet back to the speaker spikes and noticed that the screws were loose again. GDHAL, I could feel the loose screws with my hands while gently and carefully tipping the speaker to change the spikes. While I don't doubt this happens during shipping, it would seem it also happens in conjunction with changing speaker placement and/or normal use for my T1s.

I've used screws for years with a dab of some blue compound on them that prevents the screws from inadvertently loosening. Is that not Loctite? I didn't think Loctite was like a super glue. Any suggestions on how to prevent the screws from loosening would be appreciated.

I don't really see this as a big deal. Tightening screws once in a while isn't a problem. The only time it becomes an issue is if an audible rattling occurs and that did not happen this last time.

Cheers,

T Cobe

Thanks T Cobe.

Moderator, does GET have a drawing and/or photo of the underside of the base of the T1? If yes can that be posted please? Thanks.

I've ordered the removable low strength purple Threadlocker 222 by Loctite. Seems like a good solution from what I can tell and seems designed for this sort of application. I imagine the process of setting the screws will take no more than 30 minutes.

Cheers,

That's fine. It should be noted that I have rarely ever seen things loosen up from use, just from transit shock. Once tightened, I really doubt they will loosen again over time with usage.

I'm sure we do, but it's not part of the regular artwork we have for support use. I'll see what I can do - otherwise, how about just a picture of mine?
