Spiralock says fasten it right
Spiralock says its fasteners have a 30-degree wedge ramp at the root of the thread that mates with standard 60-degree male-thread fasteners. The wedge ramp allows the bolt to spin freely relative to female threads until clamp load is applied. Then, there’s a continuous spiral line of contact along the length of the thread that spreads the clamp force evenly over engaged threads, improving resistance to vibration, axial and torsional loading, joint fatigue and temperature extremes.
