Smart move! Now when you try to unscrew the tank, the bottle will easily unscrew from the valve and possibly shoot off like a rocket and kill someone. At least the holes will be cleared now and give you a lil warning ahead of time. From the frying pan into the fire. This is exactly why it's suggested for a certified tech to perform such a task -

The holes were only filled because they used too much Loctite, not because they used it in general. You're playing with fire and most assuredly get burned as a result! -
