Description

HEX JAM NUT:

Hex jam nuts are thinner than a standard hex nut but have the same dimension across the flats and corners. A jam nut can be threaded onto a bolt and run tight against the standard nut which will lock the nut in place and prevent it from backing off. Jam nuts are sometimes used for leveling purposes as well. Use. A jam nut is often used when a nut needs to be locked in place without clamping against another object. The jam nut essentially acts as the “other object”, as the two nuts are tightened against each other. They can also be used to secure an item on a fastener without applying force to that object.

General:

Hex jam nuts are thinner than a standard hex nut but have the same dimension across the flats and corners. Hex jam nuts have two common applications. A jam nut can be threaded onto a bolt and run tight against the standard nut which will lock the nut in place and prevent it from backing off. Jam nuts are sometimes used for leveling purposes as well.

Since hot-dip galvanizing typically adds 2.2 to 5 mils of thickness to the threaded portion of a fastener, galvanized hex jam nuts are tapped oversize to compensate for the corrosion resistant coating on the bolts.
