Locking fasteners are used over traditional threaded fasteners when vibration, shock, or other dynamic forces are present, which may reduce the stability of connections between fastened elements. They are threaded fasteners and can be either male or female. Installation is easy with standard tools, and this fastener type offers high durability and application variety.
Locking fasteners provide quick assembly in multiple applications, including electronics, aerospace, and others. They are used to fasten a variety of components and products, including terminal boards, circuit boards, tube sockets, and sub-assemblies.
