Installation and removal
KM(L), HM(E), HM..T, N and AN series lock nuts have slots around their circumference to accommodate a hook or impact spanner. The designations of the appropriate spanners are listed in the relevant product tables in Lock nuts with a lock washer, locking clip or locking plate. For additional information about spanners, refer to the catalogue SKF Maintenance and Lubrication Products or visit Maintenance products.
These nuts can be reused, provided they are not damaged. A new lock washer, locking clip or locking plate should be used each time the corresponding lock nut is installed.
