Lock Nuts - BSF Left Hand

Sometimes written as lock nuts, they also go by various other names, including half nuts, jam nuts and thin nuts.

Locknuts are used to lock a full nut in position to prevent it from working loose as a result of vibration or other factors. A common area in which lock nuts are used is on car wheels.

Locknuts are often mixed up with Nyloc nuts, which are different. Nyloc nuts are self-locking nuts that feature a nylon collar in the top portion of the nut that locks the nut in place.

About BSF Left Hand Thread

BSF (British Standard Fine) is an imperial thread Introduced as a fine-pitch alternative to BSW and commonly used in engineering and automotive applications in the UK.  It was superseded by the UNF thread type in the 1940’s.

A left hand thread is the terms used for a thread where the nut tightens in the opposite direction to normal. It is commonly used on items that rotate in a manner that could cause a normal right handed nut to loosen, for a example the pedal of a bicycle on the left hand side.
