What is a nylon locking nut?

A nyloc nut, also referred to as a nylon-insert lock nut, polymer-insert lock nut, or elastic stop nut, is a kind of locknut with a nylon collar that increases friction on the screw thread. Nyloc nuts retain their locking ability up to 250 °F (121 °C).

When should you use a lock nut?

Locking nuts should be used when the screw joint consists of one or more soft materials. It is difficult to achieve and to maintain a high level of clamp load because the soft material deforms due to high surface pressure. This plastic deformation continues after the torque value has been applied to the screw.

How does lock nut work?

Locking nuts work to secure bolted joints by adding friction to the thread of the bolt. Different varieties of locking nut exist, those that utilize metal to create friction, such as the all metal nut, and those that incorporate a polymer in the design, such as the nylon insert nut.

What socket is M12 bolt?

What is an M10 screw?

M10-1.0 x 20 M = This designates the fastener is a metric size. 10 = The nominal diameter in millimeters. 1.0 = The thread pitch, or distance between threads, in millimeters. 20 = The fastener’s length, in millimeters.

What size is an M8 nut?

M8 Hexagon Nuts (DIN 934) – Marine Stainless Steel (A4) Technical Specification

How many times can you use a Nylock nut?

They provide desirable reusability and can be used assuredly up to fifteen times after an initial fastening.

Which way does a nylon lock nut go?

Thread the nylon lock nut onto the bolt or threaded stud and turn the nut clockwise with your hand until it no longer turns. This will be the point that the nylon insert contacts the top thread of the fastener.

What kind of lock nuts can nylon be used on?

It is available in stainless steel, carbon steel, and alloy steel to bear more wear and tear while also making it more corrosion resistant. It can also lock out moisture due to the placement of nylon. This completely seals the bolt in place.

What makes grade G nylock nuts so strong?

Grade G nuts are comparable in strength to Grade 8 bolts. A nylon insert on these metric nuts prevents vibration from loosening them, and a domed head protects the threads at the end of the bolt from damage and debris. The nylon cap covers and grips the threads to resist loosening. A nylon insert grips threads to resist loosening.

What kind of steel is a metric locknut made out of?

Made from medium-strength steel with a nylon insert, these Class 8 metric locknuts are strong enough to use on most machinery and equipment that’s prone to vibration and temperature changes. Get a grip on metric bolts exposed to vibration, wear, and changes in temperature.

Can You Jam a hex nut to a locknut?

Use them in light duty low clearance applications or jam one against a hex nut to hold it in place. With a shorter hex height than standard DIN 985 locknuts, these nylon-insert locknuts meet international ISO 10511 dimensional standards and are easy to install in tight spaces.
