Stainless lock washer or locktite


This last weekend I noticed that the bolts holding down my blocks for halyards and reefing lines at the base of the mast were all loose, one was completely out. My question is:

Clearly I need to check them more often.

What would be better, stainless lock washers (stainless is a bit soft) or locktight (or competitor)?
