User "Huns" says that Loctite's Super Glue [has a] "Clever container design, but STILL, it glues itself shut!", on an "Amazon" review on August 12, 2013:
"Lots of reviews about how clever the bottle design is, but I wonder how many of them have tried to use it more than a few times. You squeeze on the red things on the side of the bottle and it pumps some superglue out of the nozzle. The trouble is that if even a little superglue stays on the nozzle and you screw the cap back on, the cap isn't going to come off ever again, or if it does it's going to rip out a chunk of the nozzle with it. Result: You pay for 4 ounces of superglue and get to use maybe 1 / 20th of that. I got two bottles of this stuff from Amazon. The first bottle was unopenable the second day I tried to use it. I opened the 2nd bottle, it lasted for two days and then promptly welded itself shut. I used pliers to get it open again. Half the nozzle stayed in the cap. I was able to use it anyway. Today I tried to open it again and it won't. Want to guess how much of the nozzle will get ripped off this time? I don't. This stuff is a waste."
Anita says"It\'s horrible. Use it once then the bottle seizes and you can\'t use it anymore. Total waste of money"
Philip Slater says"Loctite All Plastics Super Glue. Here is another company trading on past reputation. As part of Henkel, they should stick to wallpaper glue. One thing this expensive stuff does not do, is stick All Plastics. Yes, we all know that thermoplastics like polythene are tricky to glue, better to heat weld. What shouldn't be a problem is sticking a bit of polyester to another bit of polyester. If gluing means holding two bits of plastic together for 5 minutes without even breathing on it, then it works. But anything more than that and this stuff totally fails. Wallpaper glue would be better. Or just plain ordinary cheapo superglue. Despite raising it with their "Technical Department", nothing heard, so 1-star for a rotten expensive product and another 1-star for equally rotten support. Oh yes, like all the other minute tubes of superglue, as soon as you take the top off, it clags up solid. I could recommend a much cheaper brand that comes in much larger bottles with an activator and is quite good for mitred joints, but I wont."
Pelican says"Just bought a bottle of loctite super glue cut end cap nothing came out cut again nothing came out €3.75 wasted what a pile of crap the bottle press side buttons don't work or it,s not been filled at factory, absolutely rubbish"
Jacki&Rob Degavino says"Just bought new pack of Loctite precision super glue to glue two plastic parts together...result useless, this is the worst super glue I have ever used I will try Gorilla next time as this is the last Loctite product I will use, it still sticks flesh perfectly but anything else forget is"
Steven James says"Not a company of integrity. Appalling customer service and did not accept liability after one of their faulty glues oozed Out onto and expensive desk. Don’t buy their products, try Gorilla glue instead, I am trying theirs out now."
