I have a 750lb sac that has the connections on the end for hoses, but I need to plug them as they will not be used in the integrated system. Problem is, there is lock-tite or something on the threads. I've tried heating it up to break them loose, but I almost burned the sac in the process and they wouldn't budge at all. Any ideas at all? If it helps at all, it looks like blue lock-tite was used.

Just an idea. I know they aren't using it on plastic threads. I would definitely be careful.

I will give it a shot. How in the world did you run across that?

Any other ideas?

Well if you can't get it off use a fly high quick connect and plug it with a piece of 3/4" hose.

Call Fly High..>They'll explain how to heat it up with a hair dryer and what to do to remove. I called and they walked me through it.. Takes about 10 minutes to do.. you think you are tearing it up, but it works..
