SPRING NUTS AND PUSH-ON NUTS
Bends - Curved
Curved-the bend in the nut adds a spring element for increased resistance to loosening. It also provides easy handling during the installation process. The degree of the bend depends on the loadbearing requirements of the joint. Shakeproof can help to design the perfect solution.
Bends - Flat Base
Flat-this design is best suited for low-pressure joints. It provides a quick installation and can be designed with any of the described impressions. It is also the easiest to modify the ends or add barbs for increased grip.
Impressions - Twin Prong
Twin Prong-for use on either a threaded or unthreaded part. This design is easy to install and very user-friendly across many platforms. It makes a great impression for fastening many different joints.
Impressions - Diamond
Diamond-this is the easiest design to install and required the least amount of pressure. It is only used for fastening unthreaded parts.
Impressions - Spira Cone
Spira Cone-the 360 degree engagement creates an extremely strong hold for fasteners with a machine pitch. It is completely re-usable for service and installation purposes.
Impressions - Hardened Stud Retainers
Hardened Stud Retainer-extra gripping power helps to secure hardened fasteners where normal impressions might fail. This is very important in harsh environments.
Ends - Turned Up
Turned Up-this helps to protect the surface as well as make handling the fasteners much easier during installation.
Ends - Turned Down
Turned Down-the corners ‘bite’ into the surface of the joint to reduce movement, resist vibration, and secure the nut against the fastener.
Ends - Notched
Notched-the ends can have notches to fit around plastic bosses, other fasteners, and obstacles. These help in anti-rotation and creating a more secure joint.
