If I'm out in the garage, in the middle of a project, and I read instructions that say to apply something with a cotton swab, I'll grab anything handy to use that might work, instead of going into the house to get a cotton swab. Same idea applies to the threadlock. Many of you probably already have a threadlock compound in your possession, but there are so many different types, and whenever you grab an old bottle it's always plugged up or something. This way everything you need, except a few basic hand tools, is there at the time you open the package.
I think it's very detailed. That's what needed - the DISA is not hard to remove, and there might be people who are not mechanically oriented. With all the details, it's a true and easy DIY.

Thanks bud
