Solutions: Specialty Threaded Nuts & Bolts
The latest in thread locking technology!
The Shakeproof® Thread is a curved thread feature creating a mechanical interference with its internally threaded mating component. The curved thread or locking wave feature is dispersed evenly among the threaded body every 4th pitch. The mechanical interference between the internal and external threads ensures the fastener stays tight regardless of its environment —vibration, shock, lubricants or heat.
Features and Benefits
Functions in any standard tapped hole
Qualifies on standard Go/No Go Gauges
Reusable for ease of service compared to permanent locking alternatives
More value — Thread locking feature created every 4th pitch during thread rolling means versatility and eliminates cost of secondary processes for added components or chemicals that must be placed at custom thread locations
Better performance — mechanical interference provides increased cycle life with consistent and repeatable results not possible with patches or distorted threads
