When designing the Lightweight Enhanced (LE™) Castle Nut & End Plate System, Fortis came up with two systems that virtually eliminate the risk of your castle nut ever backing out. With two lockdown systems (K1 & K2), they’ve engineered a solution to install the castle nut onto the end plate that is not only robust but also stands true to our brand of innovation and ingenuity. The K2 system utilizes a locking lever design that seats itself through a designed slot on the bottom of the endplate and into corresponding cutouts on the castle nut. This ultra-precision fit allows the castle nut to seat itself into place without the need to stake the endplate. No set screws, no backing out, and no failures. All of these features at only .53 oz / 15 grams!
