A regular nut (or a longer coupling nut) with blue Loctite will work.  Make sure that it is tight enough and occasionally re-tighten.

Red Loctite can screw-up threads since it is supposed to be permanent.

I’ve been forced to use the bottom half of two piece starter nuts many times and given proper tightening and blue Loctite I haven’t had problems.
