This all metal self locking turret type nut is a one piece self locking nut. The Locking feature of the all metal self locking turret type nut is obtained by the two de-pitched self-locking slots found on the turret portion of the nut.
When installed on the application the slotted turret section reverts to its original form and each slot grips the shank / thread of the bolt on two different planes and opposite sides.
The self locking feature of this turret type nut has many advantages ensuring that the bolt is not damaged, high resistance to vibration and is a reusable product. It also has a high resistance to temperature and can be used in volatile environments with temperatures ranging from -200oC to +400oC (depending on material and finishes).
