How are you all securing your barrel thread protector caps on? Loctite will not work. I’m hearing two other options that might help:
Use an O ring.
Pipe thread tape.
If you use an O ring, how does that go on?
Thanks in advance.
With an O-ring, you usually put it over the threads, against the shoulder, and tighten the thread protector against it. Just make sure to remove it before screwing on your suppressor.

O-Rings here also.
I have found I don’t have to really torque down on the o-ring, just finger tight and the o-ring holds it.
I try to get Viton rings when I can. They are more resistant to the heat and chemicals (cleaning) they come in contact with.
Life's been good to me so far
What be never had much of an issues with them loosening up. I buy my thread protectors from a shop called “down range products”. They make nice stuff for good prices.
Rubber o-rings have worked better for me than using a wrench to torque down a thread protector. O-rings cost pennies.
O rings work very well. I forget if it was Beretta or CZ but they used to use tiny little O rings on grip screws. Never come loose that way.
