Helical lock washer is most commonly referred to as a split washer. It has a distinct design, identified by its circular shape with uneven and open ends. Just like any washer, lock washers
are made for securing nuts
in place. Its end bites to the fastener, preventing it from loosening and turning. Premature breakdowns of lock washers are prevented thanks to its durable construction consisting of zinc, aluminum, carbon steel, and others.
