A nylock nut, also known as a nylon-insert lock nut, is a type of lock nut that uses a nylon insert to prevent the nut from loosening due to vibration. The nylon insert is a ring of nylon that is inserted into the top of the nut. When the nut is tightened, the nylon insert deforms and grips the threads of the bolt or screw. This creates a high level of friction that prevents the nut from backing off.

Nylock nuts are a popular choice for applications where vibration is a concern, such as in automobiles, motorcycles, and aircraft. They are also commonly used in industrial applications, such as in machinery and equipment.

Nylock nuts are available in a variety of sizes and materials, including steel, stainless steel, and brass. They are also available in different grades of strength, depending on the application.

Here are some of the benefits of using nylocks:

  • They are effective at preventing vibration-induced loosening.
  • They are easy to install and remove.
  • They are reusable.
  • They are relatively inexpensive.

Here are some of the drawbacks of using nylocks:

  • The nylon insert can wear out over time, especially in high-vibration applications.
  • The nylon insert can be damaged by heat.
  • The nylon insert can be affected by chemicals.

Overall, nylock nuts are a versatile and reliable type of lock nut that is well-suited for a variety of applications.
