The ADJUSTABLE & REUSABLE threadlocker for knives
Add VC-3 to your knife handle and clip fasteners to keep them from coming loose.
What it does
- As a knife threadlocker, VC-3 acts like a shock absorber, isolating the screw from the frame while damping vibration.
- Prevents the screw from rotating loose, yet always remains flexible allowing it to be adjusted, removed, and reused.
Why it works
Vibra-Tite VC-3 Threadmate is one of the most versatile knife threadlockers available on the market. Unlike traditional liquid lockers which cure to form a hard bond, VC-3 is a blend of resins designed to remain flexible and absorb vibration. This unique difference makes VC-3 coated fasteners truly adjustable, removable, and reusable.

How to use
Shake well before each use.
|Apply VC-3 a length of 1 to 1 ½ times the fastener diameter, filling threads 30-50%.|
|Although material will be dry to touch within minutes, allow VC-3 to dry for 10-30 minutes (the longer the better), depending on part size.|
|Knife screws are then ready to be installed or stored for later use. Once your part is setup and adjusted, you’re ready to hit the range.|
