Hexagon Flange Locknuts


Hexagon Flange Locknuts are six sided internally threaded fasteners with a washer like flange built onto them that have a locking component built into them. Metric Flange Locknuts are used with externally threaded fasteners to apply a clamp load on an object and the locking feature is designed to keep them from loosening under normal operating conditions. Hexagon Flange Locknuts can save time on installation since they do not require a use of a separate flat washer or locking component.

Locknuts should not be installed with any power tools. The increased friction created with turning a Locknut with a rotary tool such as an air ratchet or impact tool can damage the threaded components causing an undesirable situation where either the nut becomes seized onto the external thread or locking element is damaged.

Metric & Multistandard Components Corp. supplies several types of Hexagon Flange Locknuts: Flange Torque Locknuts, Flange Nylon Insert Locknuts, Serrated Flange Locknuts and Ribbed Flange Locknuts.
