Hex nut tightens from the side with a wrench, enabling use when there is limited space above the nut
Nylon 6/6 provides resistance to abrasion, corrosion, and many chemicals, is nonconductive, and is a strong yet lightweight plastic
Color is black
The nylon 6/6 hex nut has a black color. It has six flat sides that a wrench can grip to turn from the side, enabling use when there is no space above the nut. Nylon 6/6 provides resistance to abrasion, corrosion, and many chemicals and solvents. The material is a strong yet lightweight plastic and is nonconductive. Nylon 6/6 can either absorb or lose moisture, which may alter its dimensions and mechanical properties.
Nuts are internally threaded fasteners that are used with bolts and threaded rods and studs to connect components. Several different nut styles fit a variety of application and installation requirements. Some styles, such as hex nuts, acorn nuts, flange nuts, and coupling nuts, must be tightened with a tool. Others, such as eye nuts, thumb nuts, and wing nuts, can be tightened by hand. Some nuts have a self-locking mechanism, such as a nylon patch or distorted threads, that makes them suitable for applications with a high amount of vibration.

I use this along with the long nylon M4 bolts to mount 120mm, 140mm and 150mm case fans on Personal Computers. They are light weight and easy to work with and it will prevent the fan from vibrating and create unnecessary noise.
At the price, it's a great buy.
I replaced the factory steel M8-1.25 nuts on my Reprap-style printer with these nylon ones and it made a appreciable difference in the level of noise coming out of the printer.
These are nylon nuts. I purchased 100 for $5.22 or 5.22 cents each. My quadcopter lost 3 prop nuts. At $1.50 a nut, that's unacceptable. Nylock nuts cost too much for CCW threads. These work for CW and CCW motors (just flip the nut to match the thread). I'm still on my original pair of nylon nuts which have endured multiple crashes/etc. As an added benefit, these are much much lighter than prop nuts. The steel/aluminum prop nuts I used were over 1 gram each. These weigh less than 1 gram for 4.
