    Nylon-Insert Locknuts
    3D CAD models available

    Image of Product. Front orientation. Locknuts. Nylon-Insert Locknuts.
    Versatile yet economical, these are the most commonly used locknuts. The nylon insert grips the screw to prevent loosening from moderate vibration without damaging threads. However, the insert may become brittle if exposed to high temperatures. These locknuts are reusable a handful of times, but the holding power decreases with each use.
    High-Strength Steel
    Rated Grade 8, Grade C, or Class 10, these locknuts are about 25% stronger than medium-strength steel nuts. To avoid stripped threads during installation, make sure your screw has a comparable strength rating.
    Zinc Yellow-Chromate-Plated Steel—With a more durable finish than clear zinc plating, these nuts are suitable for most wet and outdoor environments. However, they won't hold up to the harsh chemicals that stainless steel can.
    Black-Oxide Steel—Typically chosen for their appearance, these nuts have a dark, matte coating to create a finished look. They offer minimal corrosion resistance, so they're best for dry environments.
    Steel—Best for dry environments since moisture will cause these nuts to rust.

    Top-Lock Distorted-Thread Locknuts
    3D CAD models available

    Irregularly shaped threads at the top of these locknuts grip the screw for a stronger hold than nylon-insert locknuts. Although the threads prevent the nut from backing out due to vibration, they also increase the effort to install and remove. To get these nuts off, you may need special tools, such as an impact wrench or propane torch. Nuts are not reusable.

    Zinc Flake-Coated Steel—The most durable zinc coating, zinc flake is a multilayer finish that resists wear for long-term rust protection. Similar to zinc yellow-chromate, it won't hold up to harsh chemicals like stainless steel can.
    Cadmium-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.

    Center-Lock Distorted-Thread Locknuts
    3D CAD models available

    Also known as reversible locknuts, these thread on from either side, so you don't have to worry about fastening them incorrectly and damaging your screw. The irregularly shaped threads in the middle grip the screw for a stronger hold than nylon-insert locknuts. Although the threads prevent the nut from backing out due to vibration, they also increase the effort to install and remove.

    Locknuts for use with Cotter Pins
    3D CAD models available

    Use these locknuts to secure rotating parts subjected to mild vibration, such as the wheels on carts and hand trucks. They’re not recommended for use on parts exposed to high vibration because the pin can shear under prolonged stress. These nuts are reusable, but you'll need a new cotter pin (not included) with each use.

    Flex-Top Locknuts for Heavy Vibration
    3D CAD models available

    The top section of these nuts expands to grip the screw on all sides for a stronger hold than both nylon-insert and distorted-thread locknuts. They’re often used 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.

    Thin-Heavy-Profile Flex-Top Locknuts for Heavy Vibration

    Image of Product. Front orientation. Locknuts. Thin-Heavy-Profile Flex-Top Locknuts for Heavy Vibration.
    About two-thirds the height of standard flex-top nuts and 10% wider, these fit in spaces with low clearance and handle heavier loads by distributing them over a larger area. Because of the thin profile, you can also use them as jam nuts by threading them against a hex nut to hold it in place. 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-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.

    Steel-Insert Locknuts for Extreme Vibration
    3D CAD models available

    Image of Product. Bottom orientation. Locknuts. Steel-Insert Locknuts for Extreme Vibration.
    The most secure hold of all the locknuts we offer. The tab on the insert stops the nut from rotating, even under extreme vibration. These locknuts are ideal for equipment with constant motion or jarring starts and stops, including conveyors, shakers, and compactors. You can even reuse them once or twice, but their holding power decreases with each use.
    Medium-Strength Steel
    These Grade 5 or Class 8 nuts are your go-to for fastening most machinery and equipment. To avoid stripped threads during installation, make sure your screw has a comparable strength rating.
    Steel—Best for dry environments since moisture will cause these nuts to rust.

You can even reuse them once or twice, but their holding power decreases with each use.
    High-Strength Steel
    Rated Grade 8, Grade C, or Class 10, these locknuts are about 25% stronger than medium-strength steel nuts. To avoid stripped threads during installation, make sure your screw has a comparable strength rating.

    Heavy-Profile Steel-Insert Locknuts for Extreme Vibration
    3D CAD models available

    Image of Product. Bottom orientation. Locknuts. Heavy-Profile Steel-Insert Locknuts for Extreme Vibration.
    Nearly 10% wider and taller than standard steel-insert locknuts, these handle heavier loads by distributing them over a larger area. They also have the most secure hold of all the heavy-profile locknuts we offer. The tab on the insert stops the nut from rotating, even under extreme vibration. These locknuts are ideal for equipment with constant motion or jarring starts and stops, including conveyors, shakers, and compactors.

    Rated Grade 8, Grade C, or Class 10, these locknuts are about 25% stronger than medium-strength steel nuts. To avoid stripped threads during installation, make sure your screw has a comparable strength rating.
    Zinc Yellow-Chromate-Plated Steel—With a more durable finish than clear zinc plating, these nuts are suitable for most wet and outdoor environments. However, they won't hold up to the harsh chemicals that stainless steel can.

    Distorted-Thread Flange Nuts
    3D CAD models available

    Image of Product. Bottom orientation. Flange Nuts. Distorted-Thread Flange Nuts.
    The strongest hold of all the flange nuts we offer, these have irregularly shaped threads that grip the screw to resist loosening. The threads prevent the nut from backing out due to high vibration, but they also increase the effort to install and remove. To get these nuts off, you may need special tools, such as an impact wrench or propane torch, so they are not reusable. Nuts have a flange that distributes pressure evenly across the mounting surface without the need for a separate washer. They are ideal for securing screws in oversized or irregularly shaped holes since the flange covers a larger area than standard nuts. Also known as collar nuts.
    Medium-Strength Steel
    Rated Grade 5, Grade F, or Class 8, these nuts are your go-to for fastening most machinery and equipment. To avoid stripped threads during installation, make sure your screw has a comparable strength rating.
    Zinc-Plated Steel—A step up from plain steel, the zinc plating withstands occasional exposure to moisture.
    Black Phosphate-Coated Steel—The dark coating creates both a finished appearance and a barrier against rust that's more durable than clear zinc plating.
