A Flanged Nylock Nut has an integral washer which serves to distribute the pressure of the Nut over the part being secured,
reducing the chance of damage to the part and making it less likely to loosen as a result of an uneven fastening surface.
It also uses a nylon insert which acts as a locking mechanism.
The nylon 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 nylon applies a compressive force against the screw itself.
Nylon inserts are less damaging to threads however the nylon can deteriorate with numerous re-uses.
Another feature of a Nylock Nut is that it can help to lock out moisture preventing corrosion and sealing the bolt thread.
