Green Press Fit Retaining Compound
There are few things more irritating than hitting the trail and listening to the squeak of a press-fit bottom bracket. Fortunately, Park Tool has a safe guard to minimize the creaks with the Green Press Fit Retaining Compound. The Press Fit Retaining Compound works by filling gaps and securing non-threaded parts, like sealed bearings and press-fit bottom brackets to keep things in place, reducing chances of obnoxious squeaks on the ride.
Notice: Park Tool recommends using AP-1 Adhesive Primer to prep all components, fasteners, and carbon fiber surfaces prior to application of Park Tool threadlockers or retaining compound. Failure to do so could result in permanently bonded parts.

No more creaks!
Stop chasing those bottom bracket creaks, and use this when you install a new BB. Now if every bike company would just use a threaded bb now....

Helps stop creaks
- I've used it several times
Don't skimp on installing your press fit bottom bracket by not using this retaining compound. Super simple to apply when installing and good insurance to help avoid any annoying creaks and noises down the road.

Kevin, did you use the Park AP-1 Adhesive Primer as suggested in the product description?

Hi Josh, I did not. Hopefully the few bottom brackets I've done so far are not permanently bonded. Honestly I was looking for Green Loctite, but found this instead since I couldn't find a hardware store that carried it. I hadn't heard of anyone having issues with that product and hope that this Park product isn't far from it.
