More about Nord-Lock: Nord-Lock wedge-locking products are recognized around the world for their ability to secure bolted joints exposed to severe vibration and dynamic loads. The system cannot loosen unintentionally as it creates a wedge underneath the bolt head/nut. An ideal solution for bolted joints where failure is not an option. Nord-Lock wedge-locking technology secures bolted joints with tension instead of friction. The system comprises of a pair of lock washers that has cams on one side and radial teeth on the opposite side. {}

To put it simply, Nord-Lock washers take more ft-lbs of torque to release than they do to tighten.


More about 271 High Strength Threadlocker: Loctite® Threadlocker Red 271™ is designed for the permanent locking and sealing of threaded fasteners. The product cures when confined in the absence of air between close fitting metal surfaces. It protects threads from rust and corrosion and prevents loosening from shock and vibration. It is only

removable once cured by heating up parts to 500°F (260°C). Recommended use on metal fasteners up to 1” (25 mm) in diameter such as bolts on decks, ready-to-assemble furniture, mounts, rings, gear bolts and frame bolts. {}
