Flat Nuts | AdvanceBasics
Flat-Type Nuts are push-on fasteners that have an inward thread lock and an arched spring lock which are two distinct forces that are exerted on the screw as the fasteners is tightened. The combined forces prevent vibration loosening, and makes them a strong replacement for lock washers, threaded nuts and spanner washers. Applied over studs, rivets, tubing, nails and other un-threaded parts, Flat Nuts take a “bite” on metal, plastic or wood while providing a secure grip on smooth or hard surfaces. Flat-Type Nuts have an arched base and prongs and a single-thread that won’t clog or freeze to the screw thread.
Flat Nuts have holding and locking power from the strong spring tension created when tightened. Free-running threads permit the fastener to spin down the screw into locking position. With a few fast turns of the screw, the nut is locked into place. Available in a wide variety of shapes and screw sizes. They are easy to install, remove and use again without loss of holding power or vibration resistance.
