The essential purpose of any nut is to mate with a bolt to discourage the bolt from loosening its grip against a surface. When you thread a nut onto a bolt until it sits tight against the opposite side of the surface from the bolt head, you create a kind of stress on the threads called preload, which holds both parts in position.
Metric nuts come in a wide range of sizes and shapes, though the trusty six-sided hex nut is probably most well known. At Mr. Metric they have more nuts stored away than a squirrel at wintertime. Let’s take a look at the various metric nuts offered by Mr. Metric.
