Nord-Lock washers secure bolted joints with tension instead of friction. The system is comprised of a pair of washers with cams on one side and radial teeth on the opposite side. The cam angle 'a' is greater than the thread pitch 'B' a wedge effect is created by the cams, preventing the bolt from rotating loose.
