Jam Nuts Are Designed For Use When A Standard Nut Needs To Be Locked In Place Without Clamping Against Another Object.
Jam Nuts provide durable low profile fasteners that are normally half the height of a standard nut, and are tightened against the work surface and used in situations where a standard nut would not fit. A jam nut can also be used with a hex nut to prevent it from loosening for long lasting reliability. Nuts are designed to be driven by wrench or pneumatic tools for ease of installation. Available finishes are Black Oxide, Plain, Stainless Steel, Zinc, and Zinc Yellow. Package quantities range between 5 and 10,000. Sizes vary per model.
