    No do not use anti seize, it can lead to over torqueing
    The threads should have a zinc coating to help them not het stuck.
    Biggest thing is to not over tighten!

    Got it, thats what I read as well that it can cause over torquing and strip the threads. What about the tip, some people say to put some electric grease thing, is it safe?
