Engineers agree the best bearing mounting is gained through the use of a tapered adapter sleeve. It clamps centrally and eliminates vibration without any damage to the shaft. It also provides the maximum grip force from 360 degrees of clamping along the length of the sleeve.
Our competitor’s locknut is very difficult to tighten using their instructions, sometimes even impossible. This often leads to improper installation by encouraging the use of a drift pin and hammer.
CROSSLOC™ locking system is simple and fast. Tighten cap screws with a hex key in a star pattern. This is the easiest way to lock with an adapter sleeve for uniform force over our larger clamping surface.
