Rocksett has high heat tolerance but is actually not that strong. I have had it happen, I think we are big gorillas and put the cans on to tight. Taper fit is amazingly strong. Let me find a video for you.

You can watch the whole video or skip to 7:40 for your answer. WORKED like a charm for me years ago.

Clean muzzle threads and internal brake threads. Apply red loctite, wait 24 hours, remove can with strap wrench. High temp red loctite is recommended.

My experience is that they only get stuck on when they're cranked down hot, then they "shrink wrap" themselves onto the mount when they cool.

Zak obviously is the authority, but I advocate red loctiting to your barrel, then hitting the base of the suppressor with a blowtorch to get it (reasonably) toasty before trying to screw off.

Loctite and wait did the trick. I went ahead and took all my CB’s off and threw them in the ultrasonic cleaner. I’m going to clean the threads and re-install them all with some 272 red Loctite.
