Locknut (3873 views - Mechanical Engineering)

A locknut, also known as a lock nut, 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. The first type used fiber instead of nylon and was invented in 1931. Locknuts, jam nuts, lock washers, and thread-locking fluid are ways to prevent vibration from loosening a bolted joint.

A locknut, also known as a lock nut, locking nut, prevailing torque nut,[1] stiff nut[1] or elastic stop nut,[2] 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.[2] The first type used fiber instead of nylon and was invented in 1931.[3]

Locknuts, jam nuts, lock washers, and thread-locking fluid are ways to prevent vibration from loosening a bolted joint.

Types

There are various kinds of specialised lock nuts, including:

Prevailing torque values

Prevailing torque[5] 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-).
