I can think of more critical bolts. For example the ones that hold the rotor blade on the helicopter. There is a big nut holding the rotor hub to the main rotor shaft of the helicopter. That nut is generally called the Jesus nut. It is called that because if it ever falls of you say "Oh Jesus!", and then you can only hope to meet him.

When an aircraft bolt has a serial number on it, you can bet they know who made it, and when his last urine sample was taken.
.....and I always made sure that the Gunny Sargent over the maintenance shack had his particular brand of adult beverage available, it didn't matter if I had to have my folks ship it in from Tennessee..........then I got sheep-dipped and sent to Udorn.....and them peeps didn't EVEN speak 'Merican. NOW THAT IS SCARY, FOLKS!
