Wikipedia

  1. Locknut

    A locknut, also known as a lock nut, locking nut, self-locking nut, prevailing torque nut, stiff nut or elastic stop nut, is a nut that resists loosening under vibrations and torque. Prevailing torque nuts have some portion of the nut that deforms elastically to provide a locking action. Free-spinning locknuts exist which carry the advantage of not requiring extra torque until seated.

    A locknut is a type of nut that is specifically designed to resist loosening when exposed to vibrations or torque. It often includes a locking device that either distorts the threads or utilizes a secondary mechanism, such as a nylon insert or a drilled hole in the nut for a cotter pin, to ensure the nut stays in place once tightened. These are commonly utilized in automotive, aerospace, or industrial applications.
