Locknut SS, also known as a locking nut, self-locking nut, prevailing torque nut, stiff nut or elastic stop nut, is a nut that resists loosening under vibrations and torque. Elastic stop nuts and prevailing torque nuts are of the particular type where some portion of the nut deforms elastically to provide a locking action.
Nut SS features:
- Unique design that prevents them from loosening when exposed to vibrations.
- Traditional nuts simply consist of a basic threaded hole, so constant exposure to vibrations can knock them loose from the bolt on which they are placed.
- 1 piece nut.
