Go to your local hardware or plumbing supply store and get some "teflon" tape. It is what plumbers use to seal pipes. Place a couple of wraps of the tape around the threads.

Peace,

You should have the yellow, "gas approved" teflon tape (it's thicker). What city do you live in?

Peace,

You wouldn't have seen it because you were not looking for it. You can also order it online. So stop making excuses, and get some. Pros are telling you what you need. Listen to them.

GRRRR!!! Man you have a Home Depot, and Lowes in your town. They both carry it. Go down to the plumbing section and look for this.

I cannot see the item in the OP, but assume it is equivalent to locktite.

That is a weak glue and great to keep a tread from loosening.
Not so great if you ever want to adjust focus, it is rather annoying to have to remove and reapply, then wait for it to cure. (where is the batshit crazy smilie?)

Go for the teflon tape.

I am definitely getting a chuckle out of this thread. I think this guy is having a go at us or something.

What kind of hardware store would not have Teflon tape. It is like not having a Philips head screwdriver or duct tape.

Hell even an auto parts store will have it. I got my last roll at AutoZone.
