At times when I had no leather straps and I lost or misplaced a screw, temporarily I will use very small zip ties.

Ugh! That is too bad!!! I have a gorgeous headstall with those - I super glued them....can't get them out now.

I had a rein break (not those kind of screws though) and thank goodness someone had some latigo to fix it. I started riding with latigos but I don't have them anymore and can't remember why!!! This has reminded me to get some more!

Ladies go to an auto parts store, or even the automotive section of Wally world, and get some BLUE,,, not red not green but BLUE loctite, put a dab on the threads, a little over hand tight snugged down and they stay on but you can get them back off with slip jaw pliers on one side and screw driver on the other,,, But yeh I despose the things, why not put some kinda allen head or screw slot on both sides.

Loctite (blue) is perfect for Chicago screws

I hate chicago screws, lost expensive silver buckle part on my mock billet because the stupid screw came undone.

I was riding a young stallion whom I'd just started a few days before. To give him a break I decided to take him out of the yard which was fenced in. I dismounted and opened the big gate and as I turned to set a rein on his neck, the rein fell from the bit. OK, he doesn't know that, so I reached for the other. Just as my hand touched it, #2 dropped. He knew in a hearbeat and was out the gate like a flash. The novelty wore off after about 15 min then he came to me, I'm sure laughing at me. Anyway, lesson learned. Now those screws are either nail polished in or I punch two more holes and lace them on. I don't trust snaps either and will remove them.

Loctite is definitely the way to not lose those dangnab screws, but you got to remember to put it on!

Loctite is fine, but white glue is easier to break when you do need to unscrew them. Because those screws are so little, there's little area to grip.
