A locknut is a nut that resists loosening under vibrations and torque.
Locknuts are used to locate bearings onto a shaft. Additionally, they can be used to mount bearings with a tapered bore onto tapered shaft seats and adapter sleeves, and to dismount bearings from withdrawal sleeves. Locknuts are also frequently used to secure gears, belt pulleys and other machine components.
