As touched on above, nylock (the little polymer piece on end of threads) or stover nuts (deformed top lock) are probably the best idea, if you're going to pick up your own hardware. If you go with stovers, you don't want to get bolts that are short enough for the nut to make contact with minimum thread engagement. The locking ability of the nut is weakened if wrenched a ways down the bolt.
