    JKS Quicker Disconnects

    I have the JKS Quicker Disconnects, all 4 bolts came lose over the past 3 years; the only way to tighten them is to put a screw driver on the pin hold and torque it down. In the process I broke my craftsman screw driver. What are you all using that is strong to get torqued down?

    Alignment punch, maybe? Probably stronger than a screwdriver

    om the backside is an 19MM bolt, and you put the screwdriver (now broken) through the hole and torque down. These came lose a second time this year and added red lock tight now

    Red Loctite should do the trick. Maybe vise grips on the one end rather than the screw driver. But I think the Loctite should be all you need.

    Vice grips started to skuff up the pin. So we stoped. Seams only way is a screwdriver.

    I had a similar version of disconnects and did what BradM stated. Used a good quality punch and a Nyloc nut. I never had any issues with them loosening. The Nyloc nut will keep it from backing off, although the Loctite should work as well.
