Safety Wiring Procedures (Sheet 2 of 2)
Always use new lockwire.
Drilled head bolts and screws installed with self-locking nuts
or lockwashers usually do not require safety wiring.
Do not use lockwire to secure fasteners or fittings together that
are spaced more than 6 inches apart.
Use care when installing lockwire to be sure it is tight but not over-
When safety wiring castellated nuts on drilled studs, tighten
nut to low side of torque range (unless otherwise specified)
and continue tightening until a slot alines with hole.
Safety wire drain plugs and cocks to adjacent (less than 6
inches away) bolts, nuts, or parts having a free lockhole.
S a f e t y wire electrical connectors which have threaded
coupling rings or plugs which have screws to fasten the
individual parts of the plug together. Safety wire connectors
and plugs individually.
