Hi-Collar Split Lock
A Hi-Collar Split Lock Washer, also known as a high-collar split lock washer, is a specific type of split lock washer with a higher collar or raised section around the central hole. This raised collar distinguishes it from regular split lock washers and gives it enhanced locking properties. Hi-Collar Split Lock Washers are designed to provide superior resistance to loosening due to vibration or other external forces in various fastening applications.
Key features and functions of Hi-Collar Split Lock Washers include:
Raised Collar: The higher collar on the washer creates a more pronounced spring effect when the washer is compressed under a fastener. This results in increased pressure on the fastener, making it less likely to back out or come loose.
Enhanced Locking: Hi-Collar Split Lock Washers are designed to deliver a higher level of locking action compared to regular split lock washers, making them suitable for applications where a more secure and reliable fastening solution is necessary.
Wide Application: These washers are used in a variety of industries, including automotive, aerospace, machinery, and construction, where maintaining the tightness of fastened connections is essential.
The choice of Hi-Collar Split Lock Washer size and material depends on the specific requirements of the application and the type of fasteners being used. They are typically used in situations where a high degree of resistance to loosening is necessary, such as in critical or high-vibration environments.
