Stover lock nuts have a locking thread design that adds strength to industrial projects. These single-piece hex nuts count as one-way lock nuts because they install in one direction with the flat side on the bottom. Their all-metal materials give them fewer chemical and temperature limitations than non-metallic lock nuts. While they lock into place, Stover nuts can have adjustments or replacements after installation. They have a variety of uses and product types.
Manufacturers design Stover nuts for use in heavy-duty applications. Stover nuts have an irregular thread design that promotes a tight fit and a cone shape suited for automatic assembly. As a result, companies in the automotive, agricultural equipment and metalworking industries count on these fasteners.
In most applications, the installer uses Stover nuts with flange or frame bolts. Since they don't have a permanent installation, the installer can reuse them for a limited number of times. The prevailing torque declines with each use, making it important to check the fit of a reused Stover nut. Shorter assemblies put less wear on Stover nuts than longer ones because screwing them too far can damage the threads.
You can find Stover lock nuts in a variety of sizes, pitches, grades and platings. They come in metal materials only and most commonly have a cadmium dichromate plating, but they can also have a zinc plating. When you replace a graded Stover lock nut, remember to use another nut of an equal or higher grade or strength.
