Here are ten typical fastening problems. One device, the
ELASTIC STOP nut, solves them all-without additional parts
or operations. Deliberately undersized in relation to bolt diameter,
the red elastic collar grips the bolt with a perfect fit, exerting
a continuing self-locking pressure against the threads, and
holding the nut securely in place at any point on the bolt. It also
provides a tight seal against the bolt threads, which prevents
seepage and wear-producing axial play. And because the bolt thread!
are protected against moisture from without, the nuts are
not "frozen" to the bolt by corrosion.
ELASTIC STOP nuts stay tight, right where you put them, in spite
vibration and stress reversals. Yet they are not jammed in place, and c~
removed with a wrench and reused many times.
