Nylock Axle nuts?

I nearly fell over when I found same on my axles. First service since I got the trailer, and needless to say was expecting a castellated nut & split pin. (and no hole for a split pin in the axle either, so I don't think it's a bodge)

Knott Axle., my local Ifor Williams dealer (also use Knott) baffled after me explaining I don't have a hole for a split pin on my axle. Rest of the brake gear easily identified.


Anyone seen this before?

Is it an actual Nylock? Alko use a type of flange nut, which is a once only kind of deal!

Hi 9D280

Yes, they are fitted to some knott axles. You're right, not a bodge and deffo OE one some trailers.

About a 16mm nut (24mm socket)? Something like that. Quite a deep nut, with white nyloc insert?

I'm sure the last one I did had sealed for life bearings in the drum.

Mick, Dirk, Yep, it;s a nylock, exactly asd TG describes.

TG, yep, sealed bearings too which I also was a little gobsmacked about but seem to have survived goodness how many swims & miles. (I'll need to go check my trip log & do some maths with a route planner).

Loks like I've just turned ribnet theory on it's head!

So, TG, how much for a pair? (the rest of that conversation might be a PM moment!
