    3D CAD models available

    These locknuts are manufactured and tested to strict U.S. military standards for material and construction. The top section expands to grip the screw on all sides for a stronger hold than both nylon-insert and distorted-thread locknuts. As a result, they're suitable for use in equipment with constant, vigorous vibration, such as engines. These locknuts are reusable a handful of times, but the holding power decreases with each use.
    Steel
    These locknuts have equivalent strength to Grade 8 and Class 10 steel nuts. To avoid stripped threads during installation, make sure your screw has a comparable strength rating.
    Cadmium Yellow-Chromate-Plated Steel—These locknuts have good lubricity to thread on smoothly and ease installation. The plating also creates a barrier against rust that's comparable to zinc yellow-chromate plating.
