The disadvantages are that it adds extra distance between the head of the fastener and the surface to which it is to be secured, and it is not as secure as securing the wire directly to the fastener itself as the tab could be a point of failure if it somehow unbends or the hole breaks (which is more likely than the hole in a drilled fastener failing due to the thinness and malleability of the material from which it is made). The nut drill jigs clamp the nut very securely and lets an accurate hole be drilled through two adjacent flats of the nut. Safety stainless lock wire is an essential component of numerous mechanical systems in key industries such as Aeronautics/Aerospace. The removable fastener — possibly a nut, wing nut, turnbuckle, a bolt or a pin similar to a bolt — having a hole through a part of it that will remain accessible when it is fastened in place will be secured with the wire passing through it.

These practices are not a means of obtaining or maintaining torque, rather a safety device to prevent the disengagement of screws, nuts, bolts, snap rings, oil caps, drain cocks, valves, and parts.Our company is the recognized leading distributor of stainless steel drawn wire in Europe, with yearly sales in excess of 6000 MTons. Locking wire is used in applications where vibrations could loosen fasteners in steel wire rope fabrications. Even though drill presses ease the process, a press isn't always available, such as at a race event; and even with a press, the problem of securing the fastener still exists. There are also other systems of fastener retention that do not rely on safety wire at all, such as lock washers, locknuts, jam nuts, thread-locking fluid, castellated nuts and cotter pins, all of which accomplish a similar objective as safety wire, which is to prevent nuts backing off (falling off). The cable is threaded through a hole on the fastener to be secured, which is large enough to accommodate the wire but too small for the cap on the other end of the cable to pass through it.

The first picture in this article does not conform to proper techniques and practices and ought to be replaced with a better example. Nylon zip ties are also commonly used in applications where the shackle must be secured but easy removal is required.The two drilling jig kits from Gunson (part number 77080 Metric or 77118 Imperial), include both a nut jig and a bolt jig. Lock wire or safety wire is a type of positive locking device that prevents fasteners from loosening due to vibration as well as other forces. Since it remains twisted instead of unraveling, it acts as a fixed loop and will not back out without considerable force (greater than the stresses which it is intended to counter) being applied. Again, the end cap is too large to pass through the hole that the wire passed through, and thus the cable is secured.

The primary disadvantage of traditional safety wire is the time it requires to install properly when securing fasteners, although technicians who use it often can implement it fairly quickly. There is another type of basic safety wire twister which is similar to a standard screwdriver, except that the tip has a small grasping mechanism to hold the ends of the wire while the technician turns the handle to twist the wire. S. is being secured, then the safety wire when installed should put tension on the bolt in a clockwise direction, since that is the direction that the bolt turns to tighten. A useful tool is a drill press, because it allows the technician to apply the force of the drill bit directly to the fastener being drilled and eliminates lateral movement; but even with a press the fastener needs to be secured to prevent it from sliding out from beneath the bit.Marine grade, it is tough, durable and corrosion resistant, making it ideal for outdoor or maritime use. The wire needed is long enough to reach from a fixed location to a hole in the removable fastener, such as a pin — a clevis fastener, sometimes a linchpin or hitch-pin through a clevis yoke for instance — and the wire pulled back upon itself, parallel to its other end, then twisted, a single end inserted through a fastener, and twisted again, possibly then anchored to a second fastener or other part, then twisted once again, having excess slack pulled relatively taut to be secure. Brake and Clutch line kits come with a lifetime warranty or for the length of the time you own the vehicle. Although many systems purport to be more efficient than installing traditional safety wire, an advantageous by-product of the twisting method of installing safety wire is that it leaves a highly visible and easily inspectable indication that the fasteners in question are in fact properly secured.
