This is why I said to use fender washers to reinforce the area. There are some that have a little tab that needs removed entirely, then use the hole left from it to fasten through using fender washers, and appropriate fasteners.I have never had the fastener loosen up...The tabs the bolts go through on the fender is what always breaks due to vibration and harmonics, The metal tabs are not strong enough...I even reinforced mine and it was still not enough for most of these cheaply made fenders they are putting out these days, hence the reason why I just eliminate them altogether now...lol.
I agree the fasteners are less likely to back out than the tabs breaking for sure. Some of these fenders tabs break just trying to remove and install them. But if I'm doing it, I'm going to use better fasteners...
