Lock Nuts

 

Lock 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 insert that resists turning.

The plastic insert is placed at the end of the nut, with an inner diameter (ID) slightly smaller than the major diameter of the screw. The insert deforms elastically over the threads of the screw, without having threads in turn cut into it. The nylon insert locks the nut by friction against the screw under the applied radial compressive force. Nyloc nuts retain their locking ability up to 250 °F (121 °C)

Metal Lock Nuts

All Metal lock nuts work on the principle of a slight deformation in the nut. Locking is achieved by deformation of the last thread. This is a top locking style nut.

 

Half Nuts 

Are also known as half-thickness nut or a split nut; these are used as a locknut or jam nut.

Cage Nuts

consists of a nut in a spring steel cage which wraps around the nut. The cage has two wings that when compressed allow the cage to be inserted into the square holes, for example, in the mounting rails of equipment racks. When the wings are released, they hold the nut in position behind the hole. Cage nuts conforming to this description were patented in 1952 and 1953.This design requires insertion tools to install the cage nut into the hole. Newer designs featuring a squeeze-and-release tab allow for tool-less installation

Keps Nuts

Keps nut, (also called a k-lock nut or washer nut), is a nut with an attached, free-spinning washer.

It is used to make assembly more convenient.
