simple folded safety wire

Regardless of how one creates the hole, in the end safety wire is the easiest, cheapest way to create a lock. A can of safety wire costs $15 and lasts years. Invest in a good set of pliers, a worthwhile spend.
To prevent the snags and impaled fingers, always leave a short bit of extra twisted wire at the end and fold the sharp end back on to the nut or bolt so that it’s not exposed.
