Default Locking rudder counterweight nuts

I just mounted the rudder counterweight to the counterweight rib, and it looks like once the top rib and fairing is installed, the counterweight screws will still still be accessible from the bottom, but the nuts will not be accessible from the top. I didn't expect to find hardware like this that could not be checked for torque after assembly.

Are there any recommended tips for hardware like this? I know that thread locker is generally discouraged as it throws off subsequent torque readings, but should it be used here? Or do I just torque it down and build on? What's everyone else doing for this?
