8 Locking Fasteners developed this patented Locking Spindle Nut for the
United States military and the heavy equipment industry to increase the
durability and reliability of special use vehicles. The Stage 8 Locking
Spindle Nut System will work on all spindles with a keyway and is guaranteed
not to fail.
The assembly is comprised of 5 parts; a specialized bearing washer, the
spindle nut (which can be set to an individual pre-load value), a locking
retainer and a heavy spring steel snap ring. Additionally, the assembly
is available in a limited space version.
The Locking Spindle Nut assembly is easily installed without any specialized
tools. The system is adaptable to just about any application and specification.
The spindle nut itself can be locked in any position and will maintain
a required bearing preload value. This extremely tough innovation withstands
severe reverse torque, a real plus when you’re 25 miles away from
the nearest civilization.
When you have a critical joint, utilizing a nut or bolt, that absolutely
must not loosen, we will keep it tight – guaranteed! ™ ~ Stage 8
