Nut, Inverted Flare

Descriptor: 
NUT; FV

Inverted Flare Nut. The tube must be flared after insertion. These fittings are typically used on brake lines and other hydraulic components.

The flare is typically 45°, and usually a double flare.

Interestingly, though it is commonly called a nut, this component really is more a a "hollow bolt," or "threaded collar."
