HOW WEDGE LOCKING WASHERS WORK

 
Disc-Lock™ and TEC Series™ Wedge Locking Washers consist of two washer‑shaped pieces with seizing ridges on one side and cams on the other. The cam sides are mated together with a mild adhesive and then installed between the nut or bolt and the joint material to secure using tension, not friction like traditional washers.

α > β

α = angle of mating cams

β = angle of the pitch on threads

  • When exposed to load or vibration, the bolt or nut will attempt to loosen
  • Radial teeth seat to the base material, so movement in loosening direction is forced between cams
  • Cam angle is greater than thread pitch, so a wedge effect is created by cams, preventing bolt or nut from rotating loose

 

 
Wedge locking washers are NOT recommended for mating surfaces that are not locked in place, are harder than the washers, in soft base material, or in non-preloaded joints.
