Do let the lifeseal & locktite cure a bit longer. Make sure your putting the on them the sealant in the bottom of the fitting and locktite on the threads that have no sealant. The sealant will squeeze out after the locktite makes contact. Always always undo and check your wire lay after initial assembly. Then clean threads with solvent before applying locktite.On larger fitting I use a never seize product for initial assembly then must clean threads before final assembly. this eliminates the galling that may occur.
All that said most likely what happened is you let the stay turn when adjusting your back stay therefore actually undoing the fitting your self . Make certain you do not let the stay turn when adjusting any turn buckles swagged or mechanical fittings.
