looks like I may have thrown you a curve- ball, Halfords seem to be the only listed distributer in the uk for loctite products, everything else seems to be in europe, (according to their own site), hope you find some, if not try the 3m 77, its not as fine a spray, but it would be my other choice.

Thanks Roger. They do have the 3m 77 but not the loctite.

I found the 3m 77 is cheaper from ebay.

It's like there's an embargo on the locktite spray adhesive in the U.K. or something.
Thanks

If it's non compliant for some reason the embargo will be Europe wide, at least for a while. Their threadlock and superglues seem to be widely available, which suggests it's not a problem with the distributors.

The Loctite / Henkel websites say it's also not available in some states (USA) but the websites are such a pita to use I cannot find it again to quote it exactly.
Thanks
