Who woulda thunk that maybe you should put thread locker red in a red tube.


If you want the job done right......do it yourself.

It would be interesting to know the rationale of this packaging, you know it was discussed in their marketing meeting..."well the target audience is mechanics and technicians, so we thought they'd appreciate the humor of having the packaging be so opposite of common sense"

This is obviously manufactored overseas. In some countries, our red is their blue and vise versa. Probably shipped here by mistake.

They have been doing this for about as long as I can remember, and I do not see any reason why smile

I still have a bottle of Loctite for Small fasteners, from when an old company was going under. I could use the stuff, it was unopened , and I think I bought it for $2. Little did I know that this bottle normally goes for like $250 .

It's an intellectual property thing. One brand owned the other then split off. They didn't get to keep their packaging in the divorce, but did still have the formula.

Butter, comes salted and unsalted.
One package is blue and the other red.
THAT can vary amongst companies.
