Which loctite is the right one for general bicycle maintenance and is there somewhere highstreet/normal to buy some?

I have an outfront moon branded garmin mount from Merlin with gopro underhanger which keeps coming loose and flopping about. I'm hoping I can fix it with threadlock.

    Halfords or online. If it's for accessories then the weaker bond one should be fine

    Depends on the size and strength of the fasteners.

    Purple (low strength) is recommended for smaller fasteners and blue (medium) for all else on a bike. Just don't use red or any high strength stuff.

    Any kind of automotive shop should sell, though more likely to have blue in stock.
