Similarly, you may ask, how many times can a Nylock nut be used?
- a nylock nut can only be used once and the nylon insert no longer performs its function to 100% of design .. therefore nylock nuts should be discarded and replaced after each use, or re torque.
Also Know, which way does a Nylock nut go on? Thread the nylon lock nut onto the bolt or threaded stud and turn the nut clockwise with your hand until it no longer turns.
Also to know, are Nyloc nuts reusable?
For example, Carroll Smith (Carroll Smith's Nuts, Bolts, Fasteners, and Plumbing Handbook) notes that the nylon insert is not damaged by installation and therefore they can be reused many times, and a Federal Aviation Administration Advisory Circular allows nuts to be reused if the prevailing torque is within
Do you need a washer with a lock nut?
If there is only one washer used with a nut/bolt, it usually goes on the nut side. For the same reason, lock washers always go on the nut side to stop the nut moving. Lock washers are almost always used with a flat washer as well. The nut is also often smaller in profile than the bolt head.
