Yes, frequently.  I now use "Stover" nuts instead (aka distorted thread lock 
nuts), which work in a similar fashion but the locking section is steel, just 
part of the nut that has been deformed to grab the threads.  Readily available 
from McMaster Carr

I like the "conical top" version, but YMMV.
