Detail & Specs
Prevailing torque hex nuts prevent against loosening due to vibration. This type of all-metal lock nut has a conical shape with an elliptical deformation that is meant to distort the threads of the mating bolt or screw.
The design of this all metal nut provides resistance when tightened down on a bolt thread. The friction between the threads of the nut and the bolt increases the amount of force needed to tighten (and securely lock) the assembly into place.
Also known as all metal lock nut, distorted thread hex nut, prevailing torque nut, stover nut.
Materials & Finishes
Hardened Class 10 metric lock nuts provide a high strength, high tensile fastening solution. Commonly paired with Class 10.9 metric bolts and screws.
Zinc Plated and Yellow Zinc Plated finishes provide corrosion resistance without sacrificing strength.
