Question Nylon Nuts, Split Washers or Adhesive

Just your thoughts or experiences really on what you would use to prevent nuts (or bolts) from vibrating loose

Nylon Nuts
Split Washers
Stud Lock

etc.

Really depends upon what you need to retain & often what one has in stock at the time.
Thread lock for disc brake carriers.
Nyloc nuts for track rod ends, older ones had split cotters.
Nyloc nuts on handbrake adjusters. But if none in stock, Two standard nuts in locknut configuration.
Ask DD to list all the types of lock washer one can acquire for different jobs.

Re: Nylon Nuts, Split Washers or Adhesive

I've always preferred split or star washers. Nylon nuts tend to be 'single use' and thread lock gums up the whole thread so making undoing of nuts more of an effort.

A jock-strap may help your nuts becoming loose - sorry couldn't resist.

On a more serious note when it comes to preventing nuts or bolts becoming loose it depends on the application.

Re: Nylon Nuts, Split Washers or Adhesive

It seems to me that google the same question & you read that if supplied with normal nuts they tend to replace them with nyloc nuts.

I have manufactured a metal plate which i intend to mount my 3 air horns onto, each horn is attached by a M6 bolt & a nut.
I'm going to go with nyloc.
