(ci. isi-14)" 'I'his invention’ relates'to screw locking means It will beobvious that the wire'l or'one like and the method of application thereof. One ad ’ it, may'be provided in the groove 6 of the’nut vantage of the invention is the provision of if desired, .and it will then correspondingly cut means whereby such articles as annut and bolt, or deform the land 2 of the bolt. It will alsol be 5' or a bolt to be screwed into a threaded socket, eitherthat merely the wire to deform may bethe made‘in land various with which forms, it 5 can be locked together by the mere application .clear _ of ordinary tightening up in such a way as to co-operates, or`actually to cut it, as described , render them unaiîected by vibration.v Another abdve. advantage is the provision 'of locking lmeans which will remain effective even after repeated tightenings up of the screwed elements. Yet an other advantage is the fact that the locking means 'can be provided either externally or on the internally threaded‘co-operating parts. . ' With the above and other objects in. view, the ' , What I claimisz- _ , .1. >Screw locking means comprising two co- lo operating ordinary threads and a ,cutting ele ment disposed in the groove of one of'them to cut the land of the other. y 2. Screw locking means comprising two ele ments having complementary threads, and a l5 ‘invention’ consists in the» provision between . hard wire helix interposed between the threads >threads which are 'to interengage, of a helical when engaged, located in the groove of one and - facing the land of the other, and presenting to length of hard wire o_r the' like, preferably pro vided With a cutting edge, and adapted to be 20 positioned in thegroove of a thread or threads ' the latter a longitudinally extended edge having a profile adapting itA to cut or deform the land and upon tightening up to deform, cut or jam ‘ the projecting part of the complementary thread. on relative rotation of the threaded elements. - The invention is illustrated diagrammatically inA having the wire helix of such cross-sectional ~ 3. Screw locking means as set forth in claim 2 the accompanying drawing, which is a section -contour as to render its opposite longitudinal 25 lthrough a nut and bolt for. the purpose of ex edges, presented respectively to the groove of 25 ample.
