3/8-16 Nylon Insert Locknut 18-8 Stainless Steel 2500 pack
A nylon insert lock nut is a kind of nut that includes a nylon collar insert. These nuts are also referred to as "nylok" or "nylock".
The plastic insert is placed at the end of the nut and its inner diameter (ID) is slightly smaller than the major diameter of the screw. The insert deforms elastically over the threads of the screw, but threads are not cut into the nylon. The nylon insert locks the nut by applying a compressive force against the screw.
