The top lock nuts are manufactured from low-carbon steel to meet
Grade A performance specifications. These kinds of prevailing
torque lock nuts are designed for use in non-critical applications
with Grade 2 or Grade 5 hex bolts, or other customized bolts.
The lock nuts can be supplied with various of finishes or
There are many kinds of hex top lock nut.
Prevailing torque differentiates a locknut from a free spinning nut
based on a value of how much torque is required during installation
before clamp loading. For example, on a nylon-insert nut, it is the
torque needed to overcome the resistance of the nylon dragging
across the mating thread. This torque value is usually not very
high relative to final installation torque. Tolerance ranges for
torque are specified in some standards such as (ISO, DIN, IFI,
ASME, SAE, AN-, MS-, NAS- NASM-). We attach the torque table below
A lock nut is a kind of nut which resists loosening when properly
threaded onto a bolt. Nut and bolt fasteners are much common in
industry and home applications. Many are universal in application,
while others work best under certain circumstances.
We also have nylock hex nut, and other kinds lock nuts.
Lock nut is widely used in machinery and other industries.
