Just an idea, with no claim to actual knowledge. My previous comments 
about being able to back off SAE threads even through rust because of 
the shallower thread angle, suggests an increased holding ability 
without the necessity of lockwashers. Also, the fine thread would 
allow easier installation through the zinc coating. Flame away.

Do you mean you've never had a problem with a bolt breaking or 
getting a bolt to break?

Isn't the English language great?
