To peen or not to peen, and how?

Hey folks  Just assembled carbs, put blue locktite on the throttle plate screws but want to peen the screws as well. Heard of two different methods. Think I like the idea of picking them towards one another with a pair of needle nose vice grips. Any thoughts?

I used just the blue locktite as you mentioned and haven't had an issue. I also marked them just because you never know.

If my memory is functioning correctly, I used the loctite, then I somewhat “squashed” the protruding end of each screw by pinching with small Vice-grips.
