How much do you guys crank down on your pedals when you are installing them on the cranks? No matter how tight I get mine, they seem to loosten and make a popping sound. Any suggestions?

Are the arms on the correct sides? do you do a lot of fakie stuff? The way pedals are made, they will tighten themselves when you ride them, much like a freewheel.

Been doin a lot of 180 to fakie. Maybe that is it. How much do you crank on them so you don't have to worry about stripping the crank arms? On a new Haro backtrail R2 with three piece chromoly tubular cranks, pretty strong. Any suggestions? Loctite?
