Always a silver lining.
And the locks will sell on ebay if needed.

For future when you need a "loose" fit, using a self locking nut works.
Or two nuts locked together
Or thread lock
Or superglue
Or crimping the thread with a pair of pliers and tightening the nut onto the bad thread.
Use the last two with common sense, not on safety critical parts

Glad you fixed it.

Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
