Default question about a carrier cap bolt kit

hello everybody!
i bought this kit:
http://chromevalvecoversplace.co.cc/...-gm-10-12-bolt
and i was just wondering how can i prevent the nut from unscrew himself over time, i'm going to use locktite of course.
i mean - won't it be dangerous if a nut falls? it can easily get stuck between the gear & pinion..
any preventions guys? or this kit is designed to be perfectly safe? anyone uses?

I wouldn't worry about it too much. Once torqued down properly, they should stay put. Loc-tite on the threads of the stud into the axle housing wouldn't hurt anything and be sure to tighten the stud into the housing properly.
