Haha... so if they get loose its because you should have used loctite.. if they are too tight its because you should have used anti seize... how do you win that one?

Anti seize is a solution to prevent frozen bolts. Loctite thread locker should be used where appropriate only.

Sounds like the OP possibly didn't use the correct spanner or socket for the job.

I should add though while on the subject... I have removed bolts in the past but haven't stripped the head. But I have snapped the head off and needs to have a nut welded back on to remove the bolt. What a pain.
