|stainless steel left hand hex nut manufacturer and supplier in India|
Left hand nuts look like regular nuts but are threaded opposite of “standard” (right-hand) nuts. Consequently, turn them counter-clockwise to install and tighten. Often abbreviated “LH” for left-hand, use left hand nuts with left hand threaded bolts, screws, studs and threaded rod. They are also known as:
reverse threaded nuts.
There are two types of left hand nuts commonly available: hex and heavy hex. They cannot be used with right-hand threaded fasteners.
Left-handed thread applications include:
Where the rotation of a shaft would cause a conventional right-handed nut to loosen rather than to tighten due to applied torque or to fretting induced precession. Examples include:
o The left hand pedal on a bicycle.
o The left-hand grinding wheel on a bench grinder.
o The axle nuts, or less commonly, lug nuts on the left side of some automobiles.
o The securing nut on some circular saw blades – the large torque at startup should tend to tighten the nut.
Our range is available in Stainless Steel and include fine pitch sizes also.
