Böllhoff Parabel


Approved. Secure. RIPP LOCK®.

The RIPP LOCK® range offers a proven solution for securing screws in a wide variety of applications, even for connections subject to high dynamic loads. It is a reliable element for use over the entire life cycle of the end product.

In 2010 Böllhoff launched the RIPP LOCK® washer. Its aim is and was to provide a high functional and reliable locking element in order to fill the existing gap in the market. Previous locking elements (e.g. spring washer DIN 127) have been proven ineffective and have been withdrawn by the standard committee already in 2003. Before RIPP LOCK® has been started, mainly customized and expensive locking solutions have been used.

The high level of interest in a validated economical screw lock led to the success of the RIPP LOCK® washer and subsequently to a continuous product expansion. Meanwhile, the portfolio includes steel and stainless steel versions of the washer in various outer diameters as well as an extensive range of nuts and bolts. In addition, the RIPP LOCK® product family includes customer-specific extensions to the range in the areas of combination elements and captive washers. The expansions are a continuous process, so it will remain exciting in the future.
