Default DW9002 Hi Hat rod keeps unscrewing itself.

I have a DW9002 Hi Hat stand. Love the thing except for the interchangeable rods unscrew over time and fall out.

Is there a way to secure the screw better, without making the rod stay permanently?

Should I just glue it on?

Mucho thanks.

Hmm. Usually, there should be a small rubber band on the rod where the threads are. It acts like a rubber washer keeping the rod from unscrewing. Perhaps you lost yours? I think on my DW5000 hi-hat I had one.

I bought it used for about 1/3 of buying a new one. Maybe they guy took it off.

The short rod doesn't have a rubber band on the thread either.

I think if you went to the local drug store and search for tiny rubber bands, that might solve your dilemma. I'm sure if you ordered it from DW it'll be $25 or something silly.

Try some BLUE Loctite thread locker. This way you can still dismantle it if you have to. Don't use the red or it will be permanent unless you use heat to loosen it.

I think I am going to put on my Hank Hill pants and go to Home Depot.

Every hi-hat I play does this. And every hi-hat has a clutch that loosens eventually.

So does this blue loctite leave any residue or damage stuff in any way? Would you use it on an expensive snare? Might be a cool alternative to tight screws?

It can be messy if you apply it excessively. It's not something I would use on tensioning rods myself. YMMV.

As an industrial mechanic I use some form of loctite almost daily. If you really wanna try loctite on your drum, start with green.

I remember seeing something at the end when I sold a spare one to someone.
Check out the link below. I guess you tighten it down against the receiving rod.

Maybe just spend $11 and not mess with loctite...

Don't think it would work too well....................as far as I know, it's meant to be applied and then immediately tightened down...............tuning would probably reduce it's effectiveness.
