Basic concept of lock nut

1. Other names: root mother, anti-loosening nut, nazi.
2. Purpose: To lock the outer joint of the harness or other pipe fittings.
The working principle of the nut is self-locking by the friction between the nut and the bolt. However, the reliability of this self-locking under dynamic load will be reduced. In some important occasions, we will take some anti-loosening measures to ensure the reliability of the nut locking. The lock nut is one of the anti-loosening measures. The anti-loosening effect of the lock nut mainly depends on the interaction force between the nut and the bolt engaging thread. There are many ways to improve the interaction force between meshing threads, such as structural improvement of nut threads, nylon roughening of nylon nuts, and surface treatment of threads.
