Freak occurrence? Bolt plate coming off 14-Jun-2016 At 5:50:20 AM mikllaw
It's well known that carrots are not very secure with modern skinny biners.

Best is to carry a fat screwgate (pear shaped HMS biner for example) for clipping crucial bolts.
Or put a 2nd biner through the bolt plate (if it fits) after you have the draw clipped.
Or slip a wire (with the nut pulled down) over the bolt after you have the draw clipped, and also clip the wire to the rope.

It is most likely to happen with bolts that protrude a bit from the rock, and very likely with small head bolts:- bolt heads for glue in can vary from 14 mm to 17 mm.
