Stainless Steel Nylock Nuts

What are stainless steel nylock nuts?

These fasteners are essentially polymer-inserted lock nuts. The most common polymer used is nylon, which is why they are referred to as nylock or nylon-inserted lock nuts. The nylon collar in Stainless Steel Nylock Nuts increases friction on the screw of the thread. This is because the inner diameter of the fasteners is smaller than the major diameter of the threaded screw.
