Edin, thats a good point. I always use loctite blue so they won't work loose.
More often than striped threads is a stripped head. The allen wrenchs do not last long. The edges of the hex become worn, and will slip, and strip the head. It aircraft, I have worn out as many as 6 new allen wrenches in 1 day. In the allen wrench edges become worn looking, do not use it. You can grind them down past the worn area, debur the bottom sharp edge, and reuse them.
