Stover®-Equivalent Nuts

A stover-equivalent nut is a one-piece, all metal prevailing torque hex nut with a conical top and flat bottom bearing surface with chamfered corners. The locking action is created by distorting the top threads and is capable of handling severe vibrations and shock loads. These nuts are reusable and can withstand temperatures of up to 450 degrees. Available and ready-to-ship in a variety of sizes and finishes. Browse our selection of spring steel nuts for your building projects and industrial applications.

Grade B Lock:  An all-metal, one-piece hex nut, thicker than a Grade-C across the flats, which derives its prevailing torque characteristics from controlled distortion of the top threads from their normal helical form to a more elliptical shape.

Grade C Lock:  Similar to Grade B lock nut but smaller than a Grade-B across the flats for tighter spaces. Frequently used in machinery, plus the automotive and related metalworking industries.

Grade G Flange Style:  Similar to a Grade-C lock nut but with a flange on the bottom side of the nut for a greater bearing surface. Grade-G has a lower, more uniform bearing stress to clamp force ratio. This style reduces inventory (by eliminating a washer) and in-place cost. It is designed to be used specifically, but not exclusively, with grade-8 frame bolts.
