thread replacement death match

I went over to youtube to get a demonstration video on helicoils and found an interesting video where the OP compares several thread replacement methods, including re-tapping with a larger bolt. He doesn't have anything about whether inserts stay in place. I imagine they will do ok with thread lock.

Properly installed helicoils last a longggg time. That's why they are approved for aircraft usage.

The trick is the red loctite, IMO. That keeps them from spinning out with the bolt unless heat is applied.

exactly right....some places helicoil might be the only option because it requires a smaller pilot hole
