Threaded coupling connections can be problematic in high-vibration-environment applications. For many years, this has been addressed by using lockwire to secure coupling nuts.

Times self-locking connectors on your assemblies eliminate the need for lockwiring, significantly reduce installation and maintenance times, and prevent lockwire-related FOD.
