Jam Nuts, also know as Thin Hex Nuts, are a low-profile type of nut. Typically they are half as tall as a standard nut. It is commonly used as a type of locknut, where it is 'jammed' up against a standard nut to lock the two in place or where a standard nut will not fit. These light-weight nylon versions offer a vibration-, chemical- and corrosion-resistant option to metal variants.
The metric Kwik Nut is designed to be easily pushed down onto a thread to the desired length, then turned 180 degrees to lock into place. To be removed, it must be unscrewed with a wrench. Made of black nylon, the parts are light-weight and corrosion-resistant.
