Should I re-apply loctite on the screws after upgrading my hard drive?

Should I re-apply loctite on the MacBook Pro bottom shell screws after upgrading my hard drive? I have the unibody with non-user replaceable battery.

Also, is it bad to open the bottom shell once a month to make a hard drive swap? Are the screws and the threads in the case going to wear out?

I would never use loctite on a computer. You could find yourself unable to remove the screws to do repairs. It is unlikely the screws will wear out but if they did or you should lose one replacement sets are readily available at reasonable cost. Ralph
