(For more fun with locking devices you can go to the FAA website at

http://av-info.faa.gov/isdr/SDRQueryControl.ASP?vB=IE&cD=24
and search the Service Difficulty Reports database. Type in "lockwire", "safety wire", "cotter pin", "lock washer" etc. in the "Problem Description" field and you'll see lots of locking device related problems. Or for even more fun try searching for "fell off".)
