It also uses a stamped metal insert which acts as a locking mechanism by deforming over the threads of the bolt.
The insert locks the nut in two ways:
First, it forces the bottom face of the screw threads against the top face of the nut threads, increasing the friction between the two.
Second, the insert applies a compressive force against the screw itself.
A good option where locking devices are required in high temperature applications.

Made from aircraft grade titanium 6AL-4V (grade 5), the outstanding benefits are that we roll the threads to produce greater fatigue strength and reduce galling. These bolts are in excess of 120,000psi ultimate tensile strength, suitable to replace both Grade 5 and Grade 8 steel bolts. We offer Race Spec drilled Flanged Hex Head Bolts, Flanged Hex Head, Tapered Socket Cap, Countersunk Bolts, Dome Head Bolts, Nuts and Washers – from 3mm to 12mm.

Kye - Dec 14, 2018Look the part
Have just replaced the wrecked standard OEM nuts with these beauties. They look the part, won't corrode and also much ligher. In black they look the nuts on a black sprocket.
Well worth having a set of these!
Peter - Jan 26, 2018Awesome produce
Absolutely beautiful machining
Dan G - Sep 29, 2017Awesome product!
High quality titanium nut, get the black diamond like coating for looks and the added protection.
STEVE - Apr 24, 2016Nutty idea
Must have to go along with my lightweight bolts. These are really nice and will probably never fail ever.
