||KMK and KMFE lock nuts are locked on the shaft (sleeve) by friction. The friction, and therefore the loosening torque, varies as a result of the accuracy of the tightening torque of the grub (set) screw, the surface finish of the shaft (sleeve) thread, the amount of lubricant on the thread, etc. The lock nuts should be properly mounted to threads that are dry or only have a minimum amount of lubricant on them.
KMK and KMFE lock nuts provide sufficient locking for intended bearing applications.
