ok ,so long as you never want to remove said bolt.you would most likely tear the plastic threads when removing.

I'm in the process of making a replica medieval crossbow and have experimented using red loctite in some plastic, holds well and didn't have any problem removing it and no damage to the threads

It probably won't hurt but the recommended product by the manufacturer (Henkel) for that application is "Loctite 425 Assure".

Any experience I've had is loctite will fk up the plastic and make it brittle. Depends on the grade of plastic of course. Generally not a good idea.
