CAUTION: Dominator 4 & Locktitecoonass
Apr 10, 2002 4:25 PM
I've just received my THIRD pair of microlocks for my Sidi Dominator 4 shoes....and I HAVEN'T EVEN WORN THEM YET!! I put Locktite Blue on the screws and (as I just found out from Sidi) that there is something in the Locktite that virturally disintegrates the plastic in the microlock. If you apply Locktite, after a couple of days, the buckle will just fall off of the shoe. I thought I had overtightened the first pair; installed the second pair (w/Locktite) and just tightened to just lightly-snug....same results: one buckle fell off, the other was indicating deterioration. Sidi is fully aware of this and will send you a new set of buckles via express mail...nicest Customer Service I ever encountered...(I own 4 pairs of Sidi's and this is my first 'encounter'.. and I will continue to buy them)
