I bought some HT cleats to try this year and a friend said I should Lock-tight the little bolts in place. I'm not so sure that superglue is the best method. Who else has used sheet metal type screws for their boots and do you need an adhesive to keep them from coming loose and falling out?

I actually just screwed some sheet metal screws into the heels of my mickeys. Have the cheap frabill slip on ice cleats which just cover the toe and ball of your foot area, last year I fell a couple times from walking in my heels. Tried them out today and the screws worked great!

You would probably do more harm removing them. Just use them......
If you get two years out of them, its a win.

Second outing I had 2 screws come out. Definitely going to thread lock them in before the weekend. Will nail polish really work or am I being tested?

I've had a pair for 8 years only lost a couple of screws, a bag of replacement is 6.95 from ht, if you use glue to lock in use a rubber based contact cement such as barges or gorilla glue, needs to stay flexible not to separate from the rubber.

Thanks for suggestions. Was looking at automotive thread stuff from lock tight. Maybe adding washers between the rubber and bolt heads. Bolt heads sink down into rubber and washers would displace the pressure more evenly however I'm unsure if I'll lose grip from covering the rubber that way since bolt heads stick out past it anyway.
