    If during system installation, the screws holding the c-arm were mounted using thread locking compound (for example, loctite), then the corresponding thread inserts inside the c-arm casting may loosen when the c-arm is dismantled. if after reassembly of the system, the loosened thread inserts become detached from the casting, the c-arm would no longer securely held in position and could fall. the c-arm is most often dismantled and reassembled when the system is moved to another location.
