M4 slip on

Recommended Posts

This is the second time I lose my M4 baffle.
I used locktite the second time as well.
Is there anything else I can do to prevent this from happening?

I'm not familiar with the M4. How is the baffle held in, screws?

I have the same problem with the Delkevic baffle.
 
Carefully examine the baffle. In my case, the female nut was only attached with 2 tack welds. That's where it broke, not the male screw that goes though the exhaust collar.
 
I had to run a bead of weld around the whole thingthing. 2 tack welds aren't going to hold up worth a damn to that level of heat and shock.

Yea. Its a single bolt that holds it in place.
I assuming it vibrated out of place.

That's why I say carefully examine the baffle before installation. I thought I was losing the bolt too, but it was actually breaking off at the weld. I suspect this might be your issue. With a lock washer, the bolt should be pretty secure.
