the different ways to block a nut

I have been wondering for a long time about all the ways to block a nut/bolt.
What are the pros and cons of each way, are there specific/recommended uses? Are there uses that are no-nos? Basically, when should I use which one?
Here are the "nut blockers" I can think of right now and wonder about, maybe I forget some:
Loctite blue and red, lock washers, Nylstop, 2 nuts tight against each other, ...

I do not include here castle nut and cotter pins, these have specific application, so I am not wondering about those.

Add Stover nuts, tab and star washers to your list.


Stovers, Nylocks, and BLUE loctite allow for relatively easy disassembly.
RED loctite is intended to be pretty much permanent.
Tack welding would also be permanent.

How about a stainless bolt and stainless nut with no lube. 1 out of 3 will never come apart without breaking them.

A piece of fishing line through the nut before you start the bolt. Works like a charm.
