      Yes, you'll need to drill each allen bolt twice. It's easier to mark them at the appropriate spot NOW, while they're tight, then one at a time, take them off, drill them, replace them, and wire them.

          vlade,

          They have bolts that are for safety wire applications with the holes already drilled in the bolts and fasteners. I have used them before, also for what you are wanting or asking about you will need one of these:

              I generally look to drill down the center. Take your time as to not break off any bits.
