    red requires heat to loosen and green is permanent.

    wait, why do we need lock tight for an air fitting? won't teflon tape work or am i missing something?

    i use thread sealant for fittings. i used to use tape but decided i did not like the way it looked. the lock tite thread sealant is not a permanent adhesive.

    i hear ya...i take an xacto knife and slice the roll of teflon tape in the middle. that way it's only 1/4" wide, and mostly hidden once the fitting is installed. thread sealant would be better, but i use what i have.

    so i'm curious, why do you need something that holds strong? what's the issue that screwing the fitting into the stock isn't secure enough? do you have a picture? i'm just trying to understand your problem better.
