# PREVAILING TORQUE METRIC HEX LOCK NUT (WITH METAL INSERT) DIMENSIONS

"Prevailing Torque Metric Hex Lock Nut (with Metal Insert) Dimensions" Calculator has been developed to show dimensions of prevailing torque metric hex lock nuts with metal insert according to the ISO standards.

Some important notes from the ISO standards:

- ISO 7042 specifies the characteristics of prevailing torque type all-metal hexagon nuts, style 2, with threads from M5 up to and including M36, with product grade A for threads d ≤ M16 and product grade B for threads d > M16.

- Mechanical properties of ISO 7042 hex lock nuts: Steel - Property class 5, 8, 10 and 12.

- ISO 7719 specifies the characteristics of prevailing torque type all-metal hexagon nuts, of style 1, with threads from M5 up to and including M36, with product grade A for threads d ≤ M16 and product grade B for threads d > M16.

- Mechanical properties of ISO 7719 hex lock nuts: Steel - Property class 5, 8 and 10.

- ISO 7720 specifies the characteristics of prevailing torque type all-metal hexagon nuts, of style 2, with threads from M5 up to and including M36, with product grade A for threads d ≤ M16 and product grade B for threads d > M16.

- Mechanical properties of ISO 7720 hex lock nuts: Steel - Property class 9.

- ISO 10513 specifies the characteristics of prevailing torque type all-metal hexagon nuts, of style 2, with metric fine pitch thread, with nominal thread diameters d from 8 mm up to and including 36 mm, with product grade A for threads d ≤ M16 and product grade B for threads d > M16.

- Mechanical properties of ISO 10513 hex lock nuts: Steel - Property class 8, 10 and 12.

 Link Usage Metric Thread Size and Tolerance Calculator Calculates basic major, minor and pitch diameters of the metric external (bolt) thread and internal (nut) thread according to ISO 724:1993 standard. In addition to basic size calculations, tolerance calculations of different tolerance classes can be done according to ISO 965-1:1998 and ISO 965-2:1998 standards. Nut Grades, Identification Markings and Strength (Metric) Shows proof strength and Vickers and Brinell hardness values of metric nuts made of carbon steel and alloy steel. Prevailing Torque Values of Lock Nuts (Metric) Shows prevailing-on torque and prevailing-off torque values of metric lock nuts.
