Kep nuts, also known as K-lock nuts or washer nuts, are a type of lock nut commonly used in strut applications to provide additional security and prevent loosening due to vibration or other forces.
In strut applications, kep nuts are typically used in conjunction with hex head cap screws to securely fasten strut channels to other components such as brackets or beams. The use of kep nuts in this way helps to prevent the fastener from loosening over time and provides a secure and tight connection between the strut and other components.
Kep nuts feature a built-in washer with serrated teeth that help to grip onto the material being fastened, providing a more secure connection. They are typically made of steel or stainless steel, which provides high tensile strength and corrosion resistance in harsh environments.
