Subsequently, one may also ask, which end of a nylon lock nut goes on first?
The metal thread goes on first. If you're talking about a nut with a built in fluid seal, due to its design, a Seal Nut will need to go on with the rubber element on the inside.
Subsequently, question is, can you reuse a Nylock nut? Nylock nuts are the most common and inexpensive self-locking aircraft nuts. These elastic insert nuts are inexpensive and almost infinitely reusable.
In this regard, how does a Nylock nut work?
The insert deforms elastically over the threads of the screw, without having threads in turn cut into it. The nylon insert locks the nut by friction against the screw under the applied radial compressive force. Nyloc nuts retain their locking ability up to 250 °F (121 °C).
How do you remove a Nylock nut?
- Slide sockets over the lock nut until the proper size is found. Attach the socket to the wrench and place it over the lock nut.
- Turn the nut clockwise, until it begins to loosen from the bolt or screw it is attached to. Continue turning until it comes loose and can be easily pulled off by hand.
