- When installing the bolt make sure the head is in all the way. The head must be flush with the shackle body. Insert the bolt on the side with the smallest aperture. Only one side of the shackle swivel will enable this. The thread portion of the bolt must protrude past the shackle body on the opposite side from the head. If the bolt head is not all the way in, then the thread portion will not protrude past the hole. You will not be able to properly tighten the nut and the assembly will not reach its full safety – this is very dangerous.
- Before using the nylon lock nut, always inspect it to be sure the locking element is in place. Once the locking element begins to contact the thread and you can no longer turn it with your fingers, you should use a hex key in the bolt head and a fine nose flat pliers on the nylon lock nut to screw it in. There must be at least 3 threads extending past the exterior of the nylon lock nut. Do not screw beyond 4 threads as you may damage the shackle swivel. If you cannot mount it as described, do not use the shackle swivel. Always use a new nylon locking nut with each use. The locking ability of the nut is reduced after its first use. Inspect the shackle swivel before and after each use to ensure it is not damaged, past excessive wear or the nylon lock nut has de-threaded.
- For permanent installation, use an epoxy with the lock nut. You may also fill the hex socket of the screw. A thread locking agent is NOT recommended for nylon lock nuts.
