The STA-TITE solution solves this by using the little fins pointed to by the red arrow. The diameter of the fins is slightly larger than the hole, but get compressed as the nut (blue arrow) is turned with a wrench. The result is a tight fit that eliminates the need for that large amount of vertical force. And to avoid over-tightening, the bottom part of the nut breaks off when the right amount of force is reached.
I really appreciate a well-designed product that eliminates problems that have been around for years.
