Default First Build - Trex550e 3G

I'm on the first step of my first build and need your help. Finless says to take the factory assembled parts apart to ensure that thread lock has been applied. So, I'm trying to take the preassembled main rotor holders off of the main rotor housing. I figured out that you have to have a wrench on both rotor holder socket screws. I got one off. (Of course I now see that they did apply thread lock.) What do you grip to get the other screw off? Or should I bother given that it appears thread lock was applied? I'd still like to know in the event I need to do this in the future. I'm afraid to grab the feathering shaft with pliars. Suggestions?

Several options listed here. They'll all work.

I personally loctite the one side. Continue your build for now and 24 hours later try to take the screw out again.. If the same one comes out just loctite it again. You need to preflight check your heli anyway so I am not likely to eject a main blade.. Or tail blade for that matter.
