    Default Helicoils and Thread lock

    Working on RC Cars I quite often come across dodgy threads in Aluminium and Plastic,
    usually I put a Helicoil in and things are fine again but every now and then the screws in
    the Helicoil work lose so I wondered if I can use Thread lock / Loctite on the screw that
    goes in to the Helicoil and if I did when I remove the screw at a later time would the
    Helicoil come out with it ?

    Star washer or lock washer would be a better bet for existing helicoils.
