This type of locknut incorporates a collar manufactured from nylon or fibre and the collar is slightly smaller in diameter than the internal thread diameter. The section in Fig. 16.23 shows the collar in black. On assembly, the stud or bolt forces its way through the resilient collar which provides a frictional lock. The locknut is a little thicker than a conventional nut.
