Tristar Tower

I installed a Indy Liquid Pro tower this year. It looks good, the problem is that it seems to keep loosening. Originally, I installed it with just the large washers under the fiberglass. After quickly realizing that this wasn't going to work, I installed as much wood backing glued with 3M 5500 (I think) as I could with the washers and nylon nuts.

I used blue lock tight on all bolts and torqued the heck out of them.

The thing keeps getting loose! There is no play forward and back but a good bit side to side.

Any suggestions??

Nylock nuts, lock washers, lock tight, double nuts. All the usuals. Try all at once. If that doesn't do it, keep a couple wrenches in the boat and make it part of the pre launch routine.
