TESTED: STUCK NUTZ THREAD LOCKER

STUCK NUTZ THREAD LOCKER

TESTED: STUCK NUTZ THREAD LOCKER


BY CHAD DE ALVA


Colorado has some world-class single track. Yet as anyone who has been riding in the area for a long time will tell you, it used to be better – and looking at a Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) is all it takes to realize just how many trails have been closed in Colorado and other western states. In one particular trail system in southwestern Colorado, the owner of a large company whose products are most likely on the shelf in your garage directly contributed to these trail closures. When you have more money than some countries, you can wield said fortune to considerable influence. So if you want dirt bikes out of the mountains around the Colorado ranch you just bought, all you have to do is throw money at the problem until you get the nearby trails closed.

STUCK NUTZ THREAD LOCKER

Unfortunately, the products this company makes are essential to maintaining motorcycles and many other things in life, so not using these types of products isn’t really an option. Yet thanks to a company called  Stuck Nutz, there is an alternative product that works just as well, and purchasing  Stuck Nutz  products doesn’t support individuals who close trails.

STUCK NUTZ THREAD LOCKER

Stuck Nutz  sells thread locking compounds that are direct competitors to the products commonly referenced in many bike owners’ manuals. If your first thought is of a few guys in a basement playing with a high school chemistry set, think again.  Stuck Nutz  products are developed by folks who worked for a company whose name rhymes with “Nock-Rite.” So know that despite being a rider-owned small business,  Stuck Nutz  has a legitimate, USA made product that works as advertised.

In use, we have been unable to determine a difference in the performance of  Stuck Nutz  Blue Nutz or Red Nutz compared to the name brand products.  Stuck Nutz  goes on the same way, it wicks to threads the same way, and it’s still a good call to allow a full 24 hours for a full cure before using whatever you’re applying thread locking compound to. Creating something of an A/B test, we replaced the traction inserts in a set of footpegs, where one peg’s inserts were installed with  Stuck Nutz, and the other with a name brand thread-locker. For all intents and purposes,  Stuck Nutz  has worked as well as the name brand thread locker in the footpeg test and on every other fastener we’ve applied it to.  Stuck Nutz  also has the advantage of being more affordable than buying the name brand product from an authorized source, like an industrial supply shop.

STUCK NUTZ THREAD LOCKER

As motorcycle riders, we need products like thread locking compound to enjoy our sport, so the choice of which company to support should be a no-brainer. On one hand, you’re further filling the bank accounts of a billionaire, who has contributed to the closure of some of the most epic single track trails in the United States. On the other hand, you can help a small company grow, support a product that’s made in the United States, and help support organizations that are advocating for motorized recreation, like the Trails Preservation Alliance.

STUCK NUTZ THREAD LOCKER

Stuck Nutz  is a product that needs to be known to motorized recreationists all over the United States. As a user group, motorized recreationists need to support the companies that in turn support us. When it comes to thread locking compound the choice is clear: Stuck Nutz  is the way.
