How to best ground single wire clearance lights?

Redoing some of the clearance lights on our horse trailer. They are single-wire grounded through the mounts. The OEM lights were essentially riveted to the trailer and grounded through them.

I have to replace some of them and was going to use SS hardware. Would a small screw or bolt/nut combo be best? Just want a good ground... and something that wont vibrate loose.

The new lights did not come with mount hardware. They are these:

Or am I over-thinking this?

Thanks
Tom

A regular nut and bolt with a lock washer should be sufficient. Clean the backside of the mounting surface down to bare metal and you should be good to go.
