Inconel nylon lock nuts, also known as nylocks, are a threaded hex nut with nylon insert collars that resist turning. The plastic nylon is placed at the end of the nut. When tightened, the nylon portion locks into the threads of the screws but does not get cut, allowing the nylon nut to be reused.
Once assembled and held in place, the nylon inserts perform as a locking device using friction, which will not gall, against the mating part for applications where a regular hex nut may come loose from vibration or shock loading. The nylon insert also provides reusability. When removed, the nylon relaxes and begins to return to its original shape providing continued use of the locking feature.
