    Grease does the job in 99% of cases. I would only use threadlock if I had problems with it unscrewing.

    Usually a smear of coppaslip does the trick for me.

    Copperslip or grease. Makes getting it out in 3 years time a bit easier.

    Grease or anti-seize - I'd only use Loctite where there was a known problem with it loosening due to worn threads.
