Top triple-clamps on the cheap?

No. I'm talking about a specific industrial application for which new bolts
are far cheaper than the results of failed bolts. If Saab tells me I
shouldn't re-use the self locking nuts for the front hubs of my car, I'd be
wise to not re-use them. Kawi doesn't recommend any of the replacements you
list, so why should I?
But torquing to spec is vital for survival of any connector that sees a
cyclic load. I guess that was my point. ;-)
