just a plan standard 5/16'' Split Lock lock washer. Can Anyone tell me the best way to do this?
Here is a model of one you can use as a guide.
You can get that kind of hardware from the toolbox.
If you will be using it in the assembled state, all you need is a flat washer with a split.

That is exactly where I got the one I uploaded.
As Kelvin said, used in an assy it needs to be flat. You may use this one as desired. It has lots of sizes.
