All Factor 55 precision security fasteners possess a unique gapless locking feature that prevents the fastener or nut from loosening due to vibration. The gapless technology is an exclusive machined groove under the head of the fastener that hides a split lock washer when clamped down. The fastener head sits right down on the clamping surface without revealing a gap or edge for the would be thief to clamp with pliers or other tools. Simple and effective.
