Why on earth would you use Loctite?

The washer is a rubber bonded seal (Dowty seal). It is designed to be screwed on, does not have to be torque up to extremes, either.

If you Loctite it and the seal goes again, how do you propose to remove it without heat (on a pressurised cylinder) that's down right bl**dy dangerous!
