Yeah... hand tight with a 2 foot pipe on the wrench!
I'm sure it can happen, just not with the 40 some kits I've done from half dozen different vendors once I stopped with the death grip. Probably 100k miles accumulated with no sheared or loose bolts.
I did get a couple cock-eyed nuts recently but just replaced them with new ones out of the bag from McMaster. About two cents ea.. My point is once things are reasonably tight then with threadlock and double nut they're unlikely to ever come loose or shear.
