Nord locks are great. I use them on a few mufflers that I could never get to stay tight. Never an issue after nord locks.Nick Crego

Wish I had known about them when my gasser muffler kept falling off.The case against politicians simply is that when they legislate for all men, they always omit themselves

Yeah, Metric are available in M3, M4, M5. I could replace all of my double nutted muffler installations. Loctite and JB Weld and Nylon locknuts melt at mufflers.

I use nord locks extensively at work. They work extremely well. They make every other locking washer I've used seem useless. OS sells them for engine mounting in a 3mm size.If you can't learn to do it well, learn to enjoy doing it badly.

same here... I had heard of them before. but not until I saw the video did I understand how they worked AND the fact that they make them down to M3 and M4 size which is what our Helis predominantly use. Same thing for me usually the Muffler...showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

Used them for engine and mufflers since the early 90's. Don't anymore as i'm all electric (but probably should in a few places). Microfasteners has had them for 25+ years, packed in sets of 10 for modelers. They call them "dynalock" I remember first seeing them at the microfasteners booth at the toledo show, musta been around 1990. https://www.microfasteners.com/sear...&keep_https=yes
As others have posted, they really are as good as the video suggests. I wouldn't suggest putting them on the stainless screwz that some people like or you may pop a head off a bolt since they have to actually compress and give that satisfying "snap" when you remove them.

Gary;

How does a Nord-Lock differ from a Bellville Spring washer - after installing ? Looks identical until you want to remove it. Same spring steel serrated top and bottom ?

Come in M2, M2.5, M3, M4 at McMaster-Carr.

Not to beat a dead horse which I often do BUT the Nord-Lock M3 will not fit my YS50/Hatori since it is too large of a diameter. On the other hand the serrated spring washers will fit:

When you go to remove it (or vibration tries to remove it), it actually tightens at first till the little ramps disengage, so that first 1/3~1/2 turn or so makes it hold tighter before the little ramps snap over each other. other lock washers including bellville will lessen the force right from the start rather than tightening a bit before loosening. It's an amazing difference as the video shows above.
