Pellet & Strip

Pellet & Strip is a self-locking element comprised of Nylon permanently imbedded into threads of a fastener. The Pellet is a drilled hole with a plug of oversized Nylon wedged into the hole. The Strip is a milled slot with a string of oversized Nylon wedged into the slot.

When the Pellet & Strip are engaged, it creates a wedge between the fastener and mating part compressing the Nylon and creating metal-to-metal contact opposite the element. This metal-to-metal contact results in a positive resistance to vibration and loosening.

Since Nylon has great memory characteristics, this locking element can be reused several times. Pellet & Strip meets the following specifications MIL-DTL-18240F and NASM 25027.
